Positive News For Real Estate – Housing Starts Rise in June

Santa Fe home buyers can enjoy some national good news from the construction industry: Housing starts in June 2012 rose 6.9%, which is the highest level in over three years. In the western part of the country, new constructions rose a hefty 36%! The sight of new homes being built in our communities is a good sign for a recovering economy.

The economy as a whole may still be lagging, with still below-average housing starts, and foreclosures and lower home values still present. But the encouraging news is that the trend of increased new construction signifies an increase in demand for housing, and a renewed interest from buyers.

The renewed interest may also be attributed to the extremely low loan interest rates, very low inventories, and a “rush” to purchase a new home before potential changes after the presidential election in November. In any case, new housing starts are good news for both buyers and sellers.
