Residential housing starts and authorizations have been surging since last summer, and residential investment growth turned positive in Q3 2019 for the first time since 2017. A variety of factors have contributed to this turnaround, but how sustainable is this trend?

Join our experts to discover:

  • How sustainable is the trend and what parts of the housing market are strongest
  • What a stronger housing market means for businesses
