US homebuilder sentiment fell in June on higher lumber costs
Sentiment among U.S. homebuilders fell in June to match the lowest level this year, reflecting sharply elevated lumber costs, according to a recent report from the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo. Tariffs on lumber and other imported materials are making construction more expensive, which in turn limits affordability for prospective buyers, according to the NAHB.
