Home builders release forecast for 2013 LAS VEGAS – Jan. 23, 2013 – The housing upturn that took root last year is expected to pick up momentum in 2013, but headwinds along a number of fronts could impede the pace of the recovery, according to economists at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas this week. “Nearly every measure of housing market strength – sales, starts, prices, permits and builder confidence – has been trending upward in recent months and we expect to see gradual but steady growth along these lines in 2013,” said NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe.
This isn't just a figure that is growing in Las Vegas. Here in Florida there is evidence of decreasing inventory and framing of new homes going up everywhere. This is a strong indicator of a strong real estate market. You don't have to have a degree or even look at the statistical reports. Just get in your car and drive around. Gas prices here are $3.35 per gallon. I can cover a lot of distance for an inexpensive marketing expense. My car has my website, company name, and phone number on the windows. What better way to advertise than to take a drive and explore your market.
