The US housing market is sputtering again, adding to doubts about the vigor of the economic recovery.
Just a few months after housing showed signs of levelling off, bad weather and uncertainty over the extension of a home-buyer tax credit sent new-home starts in October tumbling 10.6% from the previous month. They fell to the lowest level since April, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. Starts of single-family houses fell 6.8%.
