Upward Trend in Housing Starts

Recent reports are proving something we've all been hoping for — new home construction numbers continue their upward climb. As evidenced by the groundbreaking happening around us, single-family housing starts are on a steady rise.

This is great news in my industry, as housing demand continues on an upward trend too. While the recovery in home building has been helped by record low mortgage rates and a decline in the inventory of unsold homes, I also credit the positive number to buyers who are smartly shopping for a wise investment.

If you're thinking about shopping for a new home, or ready to sell, I'd love to help. We have some beautiful properties available that feel like they're in the country, when they're just minutes away from shopping and schools.
