Small Business Surge In Hiring - How Does This Impact The Housing Market?

Small businesses added 54,000 jobs last month!  This is a great sign for the housing market.  Here in the Tampa Bay area our values have declined over 50% and are still declining.  I always get asked "Has the market bottomed?" or "How much longer can it last?".  My answer has always been to watch our local unemployment rate which has been over 12%.  Once the unemployment rate starts dropping our housing market will start improving!  We finally are starting to see some positive signs!

The only way the housing market is going to change is from an increase in employment!
