Greenville NC Real Estate Sales Statistics - January 2012

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Preferred Realty

2012 is off to an encouraging start. Mortgage rates have remained under 4% for nearly two months. Home sales are strengthening and pending home sales, a measure to gauge future sales, are at their highest levels since March 2010.

Job growth increased during most of 2011, with unemployment dropping to 8.4%. As more people are getting jobs, consumer confidence has also been increasing.  However, underemployment with a rate of 18.1% continues to be a problem for a stronger recovery. There are still a significant number of people working part time, who would like to have full-time work.

Even with substantial national improvements, the recovery is spotty. Payroll jobs were up in 25 states, but down in 24, demonstrating the delicate state of the U.S. economy. Global factors such as the European debt crisis are also complicating a more robust recovery.

What does the recovery look like in our local real estate market? Take a look at January figures.
