Home Builders Assessment of Real Estate Industry is Full of Gloom

The real estate industry in the United States is doing poorly. Home builders are pessimistic with regard to the housing market in the United States. The National Association of Home Builders has recently put out an announcement that the sentiment among home builders in August of 2011 is extremely negative.

In 2011, the number of new homes built in the United States fell to its lowest level since records were maintained. Home builders cannot compete with the glut of foreclosed homes on the real estate market. It is less expensive to buy a home that was taken over by a bank in foreclosure than to build a new home. Homeowners who want to sell their existing homes and buy a new home cannot find buyers for their existing homes.

Although the sale of newly built homes is a very small portion of the real estate market, it has an significant impact in the economy in local areas. Three jobs are created for each new home being built for a period of one year. In addition, each new home built generates approximately $100,000 in real estate taxes.

Dave Crowe, an economist working with the National Association of Home Builders stated that the weakening of the U.S. economy, coupled with the high unemployment, is having a devastating effect on the marketplace for new home purchasers. The record low interest rates have not been enough to simulate the market place for the building of new homes.
