The Charleston, South Carolina area is a great place to live or have a vacation home. The weather is great, the beaches are fantastic, golf courses are abundant, there are many historical sites, the architecture is unbelievable, the dining is unbeatable, and the people are the friendliest in the country. It is because of these reasons that I believe Charleston SC Real Estate is truly unique. I look forward to helping you with any of your real estate needs in Charleston, Berkeley, or Dorchester counties. Today’s article is titled:
Construction Up Along With Builder Confidence
Construction of new homes rose to an annual rate of 591,000 in January, up 2.8 percent from December when the revised rate was 575,000, the Commerce Department announced Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the monthly home builder confidence scale rose two points in February to 17.
The National Association of Home Builders Chair Bob Jones said, "Builders are slightly more optimistic that the housing recovery is finally beginning to take root.”
Builder confidence was highest in the Northeast and the South, weaker in the West and lowest in the Midwest.
