More Cities Join ‘Improving’ Housing Market List

with one comment

Daily Real Estate News | Tuesday, January 10, 2012…The National Association of Home Builders’ list of improving housing markets nearly doubled this month, as more cities showed signs of a rebound with their real estate markets.

The list now contains 76 improving markets, up from 41 in December, according to NAHB’s and First American’s Improving Markets Index, a monthly gauge that measures a city’s improvements in housing permits, employment, and housing prices for at least six months.

“The fact that the list of improving housing markets nearly doubled this month shows that a significant, positive trend is developing, and is even more relevant when you consider the expanding geographic distribution of the list — which now includes 31 states and the District of Columbia,” NAHB Chairman Bob Nielsen said in a statement.

These cities were added to the list in January:

• Florence, Ala.
• Tuscaloosa, Ala.
• Fayetteville, Ark.
• Denver, Col.
• Greeley, Col.

• Manchester, N.H.
• Cincinnati, Ohio
• Oklahoma City, Okla.
• Tulsa, Okla.
• Corvallis, Ore.
• Erie, Pa.
• Philadelphia, Pa.
• Chattanooga, Tenn.
• Clarksville, Tenn.
• Nashville, Tenn.
• College Station, Texas
