L'amélioration des marchés du Logement
J'aia lecture de cet article très important sur FloridaRealtors.Org
WASHINGTON - Jan. 10, 2012 - Le nombre des marchés du logement montrant une amélioration mesurable presque doublé en Janvier avec l'ajout de 40 métros nouvelle à l'Association nationale des constructeurs d'accueil / First American Index amélioration des marchés (IMI). L'IMI montre désormais 76 l'amélioration des marchés, contre 41 en Décembre, avec 31 Etats et le District de Columbia représenté par au moins une entrée.
In Florida, three cities made it onto IMI’s improved list: Jacksonville, Cape Coral and Punta Gorda.
“The fact that the list of improving housing markets nearly doubled this month shows that a significant, positive trend is developing, and is even more relevant when you consider the expanding geographic distribution of the list – which now includes 31 states and the District of Columbia,” says NAHB Chairman Bob Nielsen. “This trend could be even stronger if not for the numerous impediments that continue to slow a housing and economic recovery, including overly restrictive lending policies and the growing inventory of distressed properties in certain markets.”
The IMI is designed to track housing markets throughout the country that are showing signs of improving economic health. The index measures three sets of independent monthly data to get a mark on the top improving Metropolitan Statistical Areas. The three indicators that are analyzed are employment growth from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, house price appreciation from Freddie Mac, and single-family housing permit growth from the U.S. Census Bureau.
NAHB uses the latest available data from these sources to generate a list of improving markets. A metropolitan area must see improvement in all three areas for at least six months following their respective troughs before being included on the improving markets list.
“While relatively small metropolitan areas continue to dominate the list of improving housing markets, it’s important to note that several major metros in diverse parts of the country have now joined the field as well – including such metros as Dallas, Denver, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Nashville and Philadelphia,” says NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe. “This is an encouraging sign that gradually strengthening economic conditions are starting to take hold across a broader swath of America.”
Five metropolitan areas dropped from the IMI in January, though none in Florida. A complete list of all 76 metropolitan areas currently on the IMI is available on NAHB’s website.
