Housing Market Trends

Real Estate Agent with Marie Avery/RE/MAX Alliance Group

I recently heard Dr Yun, NAR Senior Economist speak.   I thought I would share some of his interesting statistics.  Most of his statistics are as of June 2007. He stated that existing home sales have dropped to about 47% from the peak. New home sales have dropped about 34% from the peak. New home construction has dropped 33% nationwide, for Florida it has dropped a dramatic 70%. Ouch! Investor speculation has dropped 29%, we woud have thought it was more. As a result of course, construction jobs have fallen dramatically.

 He went on to speak about the foreclosure rates. Florida actually has a lower foreclosure rate than the national average which was about 8%.


Positive staistics included fairly stable mortgage rates, average household wealth increase and an actual increase of vacation home sales in the country.
