BuildFax has released its September 2018 BuildFax Housing Health Report (BHHR). Each month, BuildFax releases data on the health of the housing market just ahead of the U.S. Census Housing Report.

The report delivers a macro view of the U.S. housing market, which looks at three key economic indicators: single-family housing authorizations, existing housing maintenance and existing housing remodeling.

September saw a 0.40 percent increase in single-family housing authorizations from August to September of 2018 and a healthy increase in maintenance volume. This month’s report also features an in-depth on the one-year anniversary of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and quarterly updates on housing trends, including the following findings:

  • The direct impact Hurricanes Harvey and Irma had on year-over-year maintenance activity and spend.
  • The innovative assessment techniques by Harris County authorities to aid Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts.
  • A quarterly view of 2018 compared to second quarter maintenance and remodel activity.
