Poll question: From starts to sales

By HBSDealer Staff - 05/21/2019
The pace of single-family housing starts – widely considered the bread and butter of the hardware and lumber yard industry --  rose a healthy 6.2% in the latest residential construction tally from the U.S. Census Bureau.

(The bad news: single-family starts were down 4.3% compared to April of 2018.)

It’s fair to say that rising housing starts are good for everyone in the industry – but they’re better for some than others. The latest HBSDealer poll question examines to what extent the above is statement is true.

The current poll question reads: “What’s the relationship between growth in housing starts and growth in your company’s sales?”
