The recession’s harshness is already beginning to fade for most homebuilders. States like North Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee, which saw new home construction increase significatly this spring, versus last year during the same time period.“We’ve seen things improve quite a bit,” that’s the kind of commits I’m hearing from most builders and realtorsl. I read an artical recently that projected at least a 30 percent increase in closings this year. Now I’d say that’s good news !!!!
