Consumer Confidence in Economy & Housing is Soaring
The success of the housing market is strongly tied to the consumer’s confidence in the overall economy. For that reason, 2017 should be a great year for real estate. Here is just a touch of the news coverage on the subject.
“U.S. consumers are the most confident in the U.S. economy in 15 years, buoyed by the strongest job market since before the Great Recession.

Ivy Zelman, in her recent Z Report, probably best capsulized the reports:
"The results were incredibly strong and…offer one of the most positive consumer takes on housing since the recovery started.”
