Happy Blog Birthday And Some New Housing Numbers

Hi All,

   As the month of March has arrived, we are glad to be celebrating our 1-Year Blog Anniversary. We started the Blog as a source of information regarding our Rent to Own website, and it has blossomed into a machine that keeps pumping out info on the Real Estate Market, Housing and Economic Numbers, Rent to Own, along with experts and professionals providing their invaluable info, comments, and opinions. Thanks for sticking with us, and remember, our Blog can be delivered directly to your E-mail as soon as we post (See the right hand side for subscription options - yes, it's free, and you will NOT be on a mailing list - it is only a subscription to receive the Blog posts, we promise!).

   In the spirit of keeping the information machine running, Pending Home Sales and Construction numbers were released this week, and we would like to take a look at them together with you today.

   Pending Homes Sales dropped 2.8% from December 2010 to January 2011, and is down 1.5% from January 2010 to January 2011. It is interesting to point out that the numbers are 20.6% above the "cyclical low last June", according to the National Association of Realtors®.

   In terms of Construction numbers as a whole, they dropped 0.7% from December 2011 to January 2011, and also dropped from January 2010 to January 2011, to the tune of almost 6%. Private Construction dropped from December 2010 to January 2011, with Nonresidential Construction dropping almost 7% during that period. Another interesting point here is that Residential Construction increased by 5.3% over December 2010. Public Construction was up 0.1% from December 2010 to January 2011, with Highway Construction dropping 0.7% during that period, while Educational Construction increased 1.7%.

   Does a decrease in Highway Construction, coupled with an increase in Educational Construction indicate a stronger emphasis on building more schools vs. building more infrastructure, or is it just an aberration? What are your thoughts?

   Thank you again for being a part of our Blog and a part of our family !

Have a Great Weekend, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !
