According to the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) 55+ Housing Market Index (HMI) released this week, builder confidence in the single-family 55+ housing market rose one point in the third quarter of 2019, returning to its record-high reading of 72. This is the highest reading since the inception of the index in 2008. The 55+ HMI measures two segments of the 55+ housing market: single-family homes and multifamily condominiums. Each segment of the 55+ HMI measures builder sentiment based on a survey that asks if current sales, prospective buyer traffic and anticipated six-month sales for that market are good, fair or poor (high, average or low for traffic).
