Housing market uptrend expected through 2014

According to Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist of the National Association of Realtors, the housing market "clearly turned around" this year, and the uptrend is expected through 2014.

The housing market recovery should continue through the coming years, assuming there are no further limitations on the availability of mortgage credit or a “fiscal cliff,” according to forecast presentations at a residential forum here at the 2012 Realtors Conference and Expo.

Rise in home building suggests industry turnaround | AP | 12/20/2011

Some analysts are saying that a surge in apartment construction and building permits suggests that the housing industry may have reached a turning point. What do you think?

A surge in apartment construction gave home builders more work in November. And permits, a gauge of future construction, rose largely because of a jump in apartment permits.

Blueprint for the New American Home

Interesting article today in The Wall Street Journal, "Blueprint for a New American Home". New construction is expanding the spaces a family really uses, including "drop zones", open family rooms, "lifestyle centers", and outdoor living space.

Home builders are adjusting to a shift toward more practical features and away from the aspirational.
