Homebuilders' Blues

New, 1 comment

There's something cute about an index that tracks the sentiments of homebuilders, that rather broody bunch that's so sensitive to market fluctuations. The latest survey shows builders have lost confidence by one point, the first dip since June— probably because that federal tax credit for first-time homebuyers is about to expire. Guess they'll have to find something else to get buyers on the hook. [SFGate]
