More Reports Support Improving Real Estate Market

18 Jun

Although we have about 13 months worth homes on the market (our inventory for sale), the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) are reporting that they currently have 6 months worth of homes to build (this is their construction backlog). Homes sales have been increasing for 8 straight months. Buyer confidence seems to be improving. But it is still too early to tell if this activity will continue through 2011.

On the other hand, non-residential construction usually trails over all economic recovery by about 12 – 24 months. High vacancy and tight credit are holding the commercial real estate market down. But with residential backlog showing early signs of recovery, non-residential will follow if the trend continues.
