In October, nationwide home construction reportedly dropped to the lowest level seen over the last 18 months. The National Association of Builders recently reported home builder confidence failed to show desired signs of improvement during the month of October. With a positive housing market index indicated as 50 or better, a reading which hasn't been seen since April 2006, survey results from 420 builders on the outlook for single-family home sales put the final index at 15 in October. Meanwhile, developers are reintroducing incentives again to sell stalled units, including increasing broker commissions and property opening incentive parties.
