New Construction Boom A Good Sign For The Real Estate Housing Market

Posted by John Sabia on Tuesday, July 21st, 2015 at 12:02pm.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and US Census Bureau indicates the latest estimates that new construction for residential properties increased almost 10 percent in June of this year and is currently 26.6 percent higher than last year. A large portion of the growth can be attributed to the boost in multi-family homes.

This is exciting news for the real estate market overall as it is an indication how the job market gains has increased demand. Positive conditions for employment have inspired many buyers to begin the process of looking for either a home for sale or condo for sale and this trend is particularly evident with first-time home buyers.

This upswing in home buyers considering a home purchase along with astounding confidence in the housing market amongst home builders and developers, the coming months look very promising for continued improvement.

In addition, building permits - which are considered to be a tell tale sign of home construction in the future - increased by 7.4 percent as compared to the rate in May.  Today, building permits are 30 percent higher when compared to the same period just one year ago.

This boost in building permits signals continued gains will be seen throughout the last half of 2015 for new construction. As results in June have already exceeded predictions by economists, it is very clear that housing markets across the nation are rebounding and getting stronger.
