Signs of Recovery: New Home Construction Up 17%

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Central Realty

According to a report from the Census Bureau, the nation’s builders production in May is up 17.2%. Building permits have also seen an increase of 4%. This is a sure sign that the real estate market and the economy general is starting to recover.

The outlook for home sales has been slowing improving largely due to the implementation of the first-time home buyer tax credit, gains in housing affordability and lower interest rates.
