New Home Starts Best Since 20080
As described in this article from Marketwatch.com (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/home-construction-hits-fastest-pace-since-2008-2013-12-18?link=MW_latest_news), new home construction jumped nearly 23% last month. This, coupled with builders reporting stronger financials, tells us the market may finally be settling down and adjusted to new pricing and lending environments. Many analysts take this as yet another sign that the housing recovery is strong. We think so, but it also shows that folks who really want to build their dream home will work tirelessly until they are able to. They’re not just buying a house, they’re building a dream.
