Homebuilder woes are more good news for Home Depot and Lowe's



Soaring lumber prices, rising mortgage rates and a dearth of skilled workers are a triple threat looming over the housing industry right now. That spells bad news for homebuilders, but not for home improvement chains. That's because anything that slows production of new homes — like an industry labor shortage — should increase demand for existing ones, and, in theory, boost their values. Rising home prices convince people to see their residences as investments and make them feel better about renovating a bathroom or adding a patio to the backyard with the help of Home Depot or Lowe's.
