There was good news in the Housing Market/Real Estate Market this week. National averages were up in all categories. Housing starts were up as 583,000 units were under construction and permits also rose as 547,000 permits were issued, up the first time in 6 months. New home sales rose 4.7% and existing home sales rose 5.1%. Single-family home sales rose 11%, which is the largest increase since February of 1991. This is a strong start to recovery of our real estate market and a prelude to prices starting to increase, which also mean that we are finding a bottom. Record interest rates (4.94% national average) and an 8,000.00 tax credit to first time home buyers are two factors All the statistics on housing increases are higher than economist have expected. There is no secret nation wide that there has never been a better time to buy.
