    Old news..............................................

    WASHINGTON - Construction of new homes and apartments, which had been falling in the face of a weakening housing market, posted an unexpected increase in September.



    The Commerce Department reported that construction rose by 5.9 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.772 million units. It was the first increase after three consecutive monthly declines.

    Analysts, however, still expect housing to move lower as builders continue to work through record levels of unsold homes. Building permits, a good sign of future activity, fell in September for an eighth consecutive month.
