Some great analysis today on fundamental housing market dynamics as old as the hammer and nail: when demand rises and supply shrinks, prices go up. While you don't need a degree in economics from The Ohio State University to understand this, CNBC does some great reporting on the finer points. For instance, market segmentation between distressed properties, used homes, and new builds from builders adds some depth to the picture of rising costs. Also of note is, despite the local market's hit in 2008, prices are on the rise everywhere--even in those areas not swamped with foreclosures like Columbus. CNBC claims builders aren't building fast enough--if they only knew what The Tuckerman Home Group was accomplishing in Wentworth Crossing! Read the whole article within.
U.S. benchmark prices for lumber could rise around another 25% this year, according to Capital Economics, which added lumber to its coverage of agricultural commodities on Monday. “We think that the price of lumber could rise further this year and possibly reach fresh highs, as three key factors which forced prices higher over 2012 have further to run,” said Tom Pugh, commodities economist at Capital Economics, in a note.
If you ever wonder what kind of economic development might be accomplished in this country with more bipartisan cooperation, consider Columbus, Ohio. This low-key, Middle American metropolis of about 800,000 is becoming something of a celebrity city, talked up in a recent New York Times Magazine piece on the success of Ohio and visited more than a dozen times by presidential and vice-presidential candidates. No wonder. After taking a dive during the recession, Columbus has roared back, with the metro area creating more new jobs than any other city in Ohio over the past two years. In many ways, it's a model for what an economy can do when you admit that growth isn't about tax cuts and austerity but about both streamlining government and investing public money in the right things.
Its winter. Water turns to ice and it expands. When this occurs in the tiny pores of the concrete, the concrete becomes distressed and degrades. This occurs more rapidly with each next freeze/thaw cycle. Driving or parking on a snowy surface compacts the snow powder into ice. Thus its important to remove ice and snow from concrete slabs as promptly as possible after snowstorms. Its just as critical to protect concrete from abuse by pet urine, fertilizers, radiator overflow, repeated hosing, or de-icing agents, such as road salt that can drip from vehicles. All of these items can cause spalling (chipping of the surface) of concrete. Never put any calcium or salt products on any concrete surfaces.
How do you like the new Dispatch format? People we talk to are pretty positive about it and if you saw the front page today, well, its pretty positive too.
"More jobs, low interest rates and rising rents are helping drive home construction. The improving market also means that homeowners are finally able to sell their homes, allowing them to buy a new one."
Here is the Tuckerman Home Group review of this latest news by the numbers...
In September we posted about the strong year for home sales we are enjoying locally. As a followup, we can say due to great reporting from the Columbus Dispatch and Jim Weiker that as a region Central Ohio sold more homes than at any time since 2005. 2005?! That was before the 'Great Recession' so some investigation remains for market dynamics between 2005-2008. Regardless, this is great news for Columbus, Ohio, and the nation as is described below in the source article from the Dispatch. In short, sales, prices, optimism up; inventory, interest rates down. What a combination.
It's that time of year again, when icy cold conditions can cause a cascading home maintenance nightmare for the uninformed. Knowledge is power and we learned this one a decade ago while observing a mysterious geyser outside one of our recently built homes in Westerville.
We have some attractive lots available if this post's headline catches your eye. We are constantly aquiring more as well in communities like Wentworth Crossing, New Albany Links, the Village at Hannah Farms, and elsewhere in Dublin, New Albany, and around Columbus.
If you would like a new home this year with no new designs, no new neighbors, and no money spent, then you can read all about how to freshen your current castle to brighten your mood HERE. It contains plenty of easy tips to transform your space -- especially important if you did not get out of the region and travel this winter. The snow is piling up and a change of scenery can be critical!
Happy Holidays All,
We are happy to convey a first hand report of how we maintain and manage our jobsites from a family living next door to one:
"Mike and I were little nervous with the construction next to our house...
So there may be no more exciting news for those considering selling their existing home than that within the front page of the Columbus Dispatch today. Not only are interest rates uber-attractive, and competition from other homes on the market devestatingly low, but these factors combine to create an environment where homes are selling fast, FAST, FAST!
A highlight of the article includes the anecdote from Worthington of a seller who puts her ranch on the market on a Friday and receives two offers -- one for above asking price -- by Monday evening.
