Glad things are rising for you.  This varies by region.  Here in NYC metro area, economy (as well as real estate) had been going down and/or stagnant for last couple of years.  And, things are expected to decline more this year given the tax changes (which are actually a net increase in my county).  I've been trying to insulate by business/income so it's less dependent on economic downturns.

Right now people are working off of the hype, when they get their real tax bills and the folks who lost their jobs this last month start effecting the economy then things may soften.

But until then lets party!

There are fewer vacation/summer rentals as many homes have been bought up as second homes by those who can now afford it better and feel more confident about their wherewithal. Our vacation market in CT is fueled by New York City's securities markets and high end entrepreneurs.

Thank you to those who took a minute to answer.  It was interesting to see everyone's optimism throughout the country about the housing market in relation to a strong economy yet there are still plenty of differences around.  It's been extreemly slow to get moving in rurual upstate NH, but we are finally seeing some traction now and actually have a shortage of quality inventory.
