Nuances Begin to Distinguish the Markets


We are seeing nuances emerge that will separate the economic health and recovery of the individual markets:

  • Regional Job Growth: Washington DC, the big Texas metros, Phoenix and Orlando lead the way in job growth. Chicago, Las Vegas and Riverside-San Bernardino continue to shed jobs.
  • Investor Activity: More than one-third of all sales are going to investors in former bubble markets of Atlanta, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Orlando. These investors are generally helping these markets because they absorb distressed inventory, put very little debt on the property, and are increasingly renting the homes out.
  • Months of Supply: The number of homes on the market generally improves the further West you go. The Southeast averages 16 months of supply, Florida averages 12 months, Texas averages 9 months and California averages 5 months.

While most of the country anxiously waits for the kick-off to Spring selling season, we note that peak season has already begun in some “snow-bird’ markets. Visit our new Housing Dimensions blog for some of our team’s takeaways on activity in Mexico and Florida.

This is the most current available data for all variables and markets.

* The government defines metro areas and includes metro divisions within some areas. In these instances, we report at the more detailed division level, because that is what most of our clients use for decision making. For example, we report on the Los Angeles and Orange County divisions separately, rather than the Los Angeles MSA, which includes both Los Angeles and Orange counties. We also use the more colloquial names used by business people, so we refer to the “Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine” division as “Orange County.” For the government definitions, visit: http://www.census.gov/population/www/metroareas/lists/2009/List1.txt
