The Housing Market’s Impact on Economic Recovery

November 8, 2012 Posted by kingcade

Many Americans were worried by the lack of attention both presidential candidates devoted to the housing market in their campaigns this year. The collapse of the housing market was one of the main reasons for the recession in the first place. The housing market impacts the job market and many other sectors of the economy. When home sales are up, retail sales are up; this in turn has a positive impact on the stock market. When stocks go up, inventory becomes sparse, therefore developers begin to build and in turn, construction jobs are added to the economy.

Many parts of the country are now seeing economic growth in the housing sector. There are more buyers and inventory is low. In past recessions, such as during the 1970s and 1980s, housing played a major role in economic recovery. In the 1970s housing and cars accounted for 50 percent of the recovery and in the 1980s these accounted for one-third of the recovery. Today, housing and cars account for only 10 percent of the recovery. However, states such as Florida, Nevada, California, Arizona and Michigan- that were hit the hardest by the housing market crash- are seeing an increase in sales and home prices.
