Consensus Outlook
A step back for housing starts and a move higher for building permits are the expectations for June, at a 1.320 million annualized rate for starts, compared to 1.350 million in May, and 1.329 million for permits vs May's 1.301 million. Monthly results in this report have been uneven but trends very strong with starts up 20.3 percent year-on-year and permits up 8.0 percent.

Definition
A housing start is registered at the start of construction of a new building intended primarily as a residential building. The start of construction is defined as the beginning of excavation of the foundation for the building.  Why Investors Care
