Building industry teetering toward growth
from By Michael J. Berens
Builders continue to get mixed signals as to whether conditions are improving. Data reports from the nonresidential sector show a month-over-month decline from March to April but a general positive trend for the year. On the residential side, sales were up in April but have remained flat or are down slightly compared to the same period last year. Industry experts nonetheless remain cautiously optimistic that demand will increase in the second half of the year.
