Info That Hits Us Where We Live, Saratoga Springs, NY-MultiFamily Homes

QUOTE OF THE WEEK… “The barriers are not erected which can say to aspiring talents and industry, ‘Thus far and no farther.'” –Ludwig van Beethoven, German composer

INFO THAT HITS US WHERE WE LIVE… There seem to be no barriers in sight to the housing market recovery. Friday saw Housing Starts up 5.9% in July, hitting an 896,000 unit annual rate. Those looking for signs of impeded progress were quick to point out that all the gain was due to multi-family starts, which rebounded after their steep drop in June, while single-family starts slipped 2.2% for the month. But the underlying home building trends remain upward. Single-family starts are up 15.4% over a year ago and the total number of homes under construction is up 30% versus a year ago.

Experts say the upward trend in home building should continue for at least a couple of years. They believe population growth and tear downs will require starts to ultimately rise to about 1.5 million units per year, most likely by 2015. This level of building puts the number of homes increasing at the same rate as the population. Building Permits headed up 2.7% in July, with permits for single-unit homes up 17.9% over a year ago. The National Association of Home Builders reported their Builders Confidence Index at its highest level since November 2005.
