Wells Fargo Reports: Home Builder Sentiment Remains Unchanged in May

Wells_Fargo_Securities_logoThe NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) held steady at 58 in May. While the overall index was unchanged, the outlook for future sales rose, which bodes well for home sales in the coming months.

Builder Sentiment Holds Steady

  • ·  The National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) HMI remained unchanged in May at 58, marking the fourth consecutive month that it remained at that level.
  • ·  Gains in the Midwest and South were offset by a 5-point drop in the Northeast. The slide in sentiment in the Northeast may be payback from earlier highs brought about by unseasonably mild weather.

Outlook for Future Sales Strengthens

  • Home builder sentiment was supported by a 2-point rise in the future sales component. Both the present sales and buyer traffic components remained unchanged in May.
  • May is one of the most important months for homebuilders. While the overall NAHB HMI was unchanged, the improvement in the leading future sales component is encouraging.
