The first graph shows single and multi-family housing starts for the last several years.

Multi-family starts (blue, 2+ units) increased in November compared to October.   Multi-family starts were up 23.3% year-over-year in November. 

Single-family starts (red) decreased in November and were down 32.1% year-over-year.

The second graph shows single and multi-family housing starts since 1968.

This shows the huge collapse following the housing bubble, and then the eventual recovery.

Total housing starts in November were above expectations, however, starts in September and October were revised down, combined.

I’ll have more later …
