According to the National Association of Home Builders, it would appears that our national housing market is recovering nicely.  This index echoes almost exactly the business trends that my team and our office are seeing here in Texas.  Since April-May of this year, the market has been strong.  In fact, it appears as though my real estate team may have our best business month in 8 years in September of 2009.  Take a look at the numbers from NAHB.
