The Ground Hog may have predicted 6 more weeks of winter but at Tuesday's annual Housing Market Forecast Luncheon predictions were more favorable.
Your HBA, SMC of the Upstate, Greater Greenville Association of
Realtors (GGAR), and Upstate Mortgage Lenders Association (affiliate of
MBAC) held The Housing Market Forecast Luncheon at TD Convention Center
on Tuesday, February 3rd featuring Dr. David Crowe,
Chief Economist for NAHB. Dr Crowe brought some very valuable
information catering to our unique and growing area. Including this: Crowe
predicted that single-family housing starts in the Greenville metro
area would grow 17 percent this year, to 3,392. Crowe also mentioned that while Greenville's
housing market still isn't back to normal following the Great Recession,
it should get there over the next two years.
Dr. David Crowe is Chief Economist and Senior Vice President at the National
Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Dr. Crowe is responsible for NAHB's
forecast of housing and economic trends, survey research and analysis
