IHS AnalysisAccording to the IHS analysis, the decline for the Wright Express Construction FCI in August coincides with difficulties for the U.S. construction industry, but recent housing statistics suggest modest improvement. Existing home sales jumped 7.8% in August, which is the best figure since May 2010. Although there were some larger increases in 2009 and 2010, those were boosted by tax credits, while this month’s increase was driven by economic fundamentals including an improving economy, low interest rates, and a drop in the cancellation rate. Normal economic conditions are still at least a couple of years away even though the housing market is expected to see some improvement this year. The rise of home prices in recent months is due to a rising demand by investors, low interest rates, and a drop in the proportion of distressed sales. Any gain in prices is good news because the price gains reduce the number of homeowners with “underwater” mortgages. The current economic outlook, however, is for a modest recovery that lasts three to four years, not the sharp upswing that characterizes most housing recoveries.
