Single family housing permits, the most leading of indicators, rose 1.8% from November to 578K single family units (SAAR), and increased 27.3% above the level seen in December 2011 but still remained an astonishing 67.85% below the peak in September 2005. 

Single family housing starts increased a whopping 8.1% from November  to 616K units (SAAR), and rose 18.5% above the level seen in December 2011 but still remained 66.21% below the peak set in early 2006.
