For Week Ending May 21, 2016

Housing has been a strong sector of the nation’s economy over the past few years, but new construction has not been growing with demand so far in 2016. Low inventory and rising prices continue to be the trends to watch. As long as the local economy stays in growth mode and aging millennials choose to buy over renting, the market should remain on an extended path of stability.
