Shares of the SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (XHB) , a fund tracking equities in the housing sector, were falling nearly 1% following the Central Bank's decsison. 

Individual housing stocks were also reacting in the aftermath. 

Shares of homebuilders KB Home (KBH) , D. R. Horton (DHI) , PulteGroup (PHM) , were all falling over 1.5% in afternoon trading following the Fed's decision. 

Also moving lower were shares of companies engaged in the construction and sale including NVR (NVR) and Toll Brothers (TOL)  which were both sinking nearly 1.5% as well.
