America on the rise!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker RS318386

I am reading all sorts of conflicting information about the direction of our economy; headline after headline just continue to conflict the other??!!  So I thought that I would try to stay positive and share a few of the more optimistic articles that look towards a stronger US economy.  The first article is about the job market and it surfaces the unemployment rate and how the FED views the US as "At Full Employment" http://money.cnn.com/2016/05/23/news/economy/us-full-employment-williams/index.html?iid=SF_LN  and here is an article that talks about the growth and general outlook for 2016 http://useconomy.about.com/od/criticalssues/a/US-Economic-Outlook.htm lastly here is a video from Goldmansachs on the "2016 Macroeconomic outlook" http://www.goldmansachs.com/our-thinking/pages/outlook-2016/?videoId=139052 This is my favorite of the links that I just shared.

 

With all of the conflicting information I stopped today and thought about my own location and my personal views, albeit skewed and moderately bias due to my optimistic nature and no real education in global economics... But I see thing getting better, stronger, like AMERICA IS ON THE RISE!

I took stock of my location and realized that I am surrounded by local construction and growth.  It seems all the major roads are getting worked on, the shopping centers are expanding, I see new local vendors starting to occupy those previously vacant store fronts downtown.  New construction and remodeling are both going strong.  Here is a link to an article published by Realtor.com http://www.realtor.com/news/real-estate-news/remodeling-projects-popular/ 

I personally see a lack of inventory in my local housing market and agents once again talking about competing offers on a more regular basis and homes selling in less than a week.  Again I am not a financial expert, but I know my local market, I know the inventory, I see the growth and I YES I try to stay optimistic about our great nation.  All I can say is; I hope this type of growth is surrounding you as well, and that we as a country are ready to dust off and get back on our feet!

 

I'll get off my soap box now,

Coal- Often I feel that the talking heads don't really have a clue as to what's going on.  And they've shown that they can be wrong.  You know your area and what's going on and that's important!

Hi Coal.  It depends on the political motivation of who's doing the talking when we hear news about the economy.  Because, mostly it's pretty positive when taking a look at it from a distance.
