WASHINGTON — New construction of U.S. houses expanded for the third straight month in September, the Commerce Department estimated Tuesday.

This is the highest level of starts since April.
Starts of new single-family homes rose by 4.4% to 452,000 in September, while starts of large apartment units fell 9.7% to 158,000.
