High construction costs plus rising 7% mortgage rates pose a big hurdle for homebuilders this year.

According to the report published this Wednesday by the Census Bureau, housing construction in the United States fell by 8% for the month of June, housing starts fell to an adjusted annualized rate of 1.43 million.
