San Antonio Included in Nationwide Housing Market Recovery

Categories: Home Buyer News | Posted: May 8, 2013

NAHB logoIt’s official: 258 metro areas across the United States are showing significant gains in housing market recovery, and San Antonio is one of them!  According to the National Association of Home Builders, or the NAHB, this number firmly represents all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, which indicates that housing markets nationwide are still making progress in their recovery.  And we at Weston Dean couldn’t be more excited!

All states have been represented on the Improving Markets Index (IMI) since February 2013, which is no small feat.  To even be included on the IMI, three key factors are considered for a minimum of 6 consecutive months prior.  A metro area must show improvement in housing prices, the number of single family home permits, as well as community employment as a whole to warrant inclusion on the IMI.  Data from each of these are analyzed and assessed by Freddie Mac, the U.S. Census Bureau, and The Bureau of Labor Statistics.  This is one of several tools the NAHB uses to measure the health of the housing market as a whole, and we’ve seen some tremendous progress.

That being said, 258 is just a little bit of a decline from the 273 where we were at last month.  After truly exponential results being seen from December 2012 to April 2013, a tapering off or plateau was expected at some point.  Home buyers needn’t be concerned, reasons North Carolina Homebuilder Rick Judson, NAHB Chairman.  “The fact that over 70 percent of all U.S. metros are holding onto their spots on the improving list is definitely good news, and representative of the generally brightening outlook for housing markets nationwide.  That said, our industry’s progress on the road to recovery is being slowed by rising challenges related to the availability of credit, building materials, labor and lots for development.”

Housing market recovery necessarily takes time to show real results, but what it has accomplished so far is astounding.  David Crowe, the Chief Economist for the NAHB remarks that the seasonal influence is not to be ignored – and many home builders are all too-familiar with the fact that homes just generally don’t sell the same way they do when the weather is warm and the days are longer.  The IMI showed similar results during this time last year and “while seasonal trends in home prices resulted in an overall decline in the IMI this month, the index remains at a very strong level and continues to represent markets in every state.”

Weston Dean Homes is confident in the stabilization of the market and acknowledges that things are looking up for home buyers!  Let us know how we can be a part of your new home building plans in the San Antonio area!
