Housing starts slowed to 861K in Nov.

WASHINGTON - U.S. builders broke ground on fewer houses in November after starting work in October at the fastest pace in four years. Superstorm Sandy likely slowed starts in the Northeast.

The Commerce Department says builders began construction of homes at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 861,000. That's 3 percent lower than October's annual rate of 888,000, which was the fastest since July 2008.

Housing starts fell 5.2 percent in the Northeast in November compared with October. And compared with a year earlier, starts are down nearly 26 percent in the Northeast, the only region to record a drop in the past year.

Still, overall construction remains healthy. Housing starts were 21.6 percent higher last month than in November 2011. And permits rose to 899,000, the most since July 2008.
