Home Construction on the Rise

October 25, 2012 Posted by kingcade

Home construction is on the rise in the U.S., which is good news for economic growth and recovery. The Commerce Department reports home construction rates during September were the highest seen in four years. The steady growth is due to record low mortgage rates, reduced home prices and a shortage of homes for sale on the market. Single-family home construction increased 11 percent in September and apartment construction increased 25.1 percent. Overall new construction has increased more than 38 percent in the past 12 months.

A rise in home construction rates will help boost the economy, not only from a housing market standpoint, but it will also create more jobs in construction, home improvement and retail. Employment in the construction industry took a major hit after the recession, dropping from six million employed in June 2009 to 5.46 million in January 2011. Housing is one of the most important contributors to economic recovery and economists expect the housing market will continue to improve for the next several years.
