Economy and the housing market

Economy and the housing market

I heard on the news this morning that the economy was bad and that the housing market was worse.  The reporter was trying to invoke fear in all of us.  He cited categories such as unemployment rate and housing supply but not specific numbers and mentioned nothing about the fact that your region may be different.  AND our region is.

The unemployment rate in Arlington is about 3.2%, compare that with the national rate of 9.1%

The housing supply in Arlington  down 13.3% over this time last year

The average sold price is only down -2.58% year over year and that is a county wide number, some areas have gone up in value.
