There is some thinking that the pace of the housing recovery is unsustainable and that we may be heading for another housing bubble. However, Jonathan Smoke, theChief Economist of realtor.comexplains the basic difference between 2005 and today:
“The havoc during the last cycle was the result of building too many homes and of speculation fueled by loose credit. That’s the exact opposite of what we have today.”
If we look at the number of new single family housing starts over the last 30 years, we can see that the numbers of housing starts during the current recovery (2012-Today) are still way below historic averages, and are far less than the numbers built during the run-up to the housing bubble (2002-2006).
A single family housing start isdefinedas“the number of permits issued for construction of new single family housing units. Housing starts are an important economic indicator due to its extensive spill over benefits for the other sectors of the economy (retail, manufacturing, utilities).”
Current demand for housing actually calls for more new construction to be built – not less. We should at least return to historically normal levels.

"As a multi-million dollar producer, with more than 100 home sales per year, my real estate team relies heavily on reputation & performance. We turn to Melissa Wolff & Exquisite Interiors LLC to ensure that the homes we sell & our clients, receive the most professional staging & design consultations available. Melissa Wolff, & Exquisite Interiors, are proven per- formers.
Furthermore, we have personally assisted in the sale of a home that Melissa Wolff (Exquisite Interiors) has remodeled & resold. Her attention to detail not only ensured an attractive end product, but brought true value to the property. In our experience, she exceeded the due diligence expected of such transactions. She maintained a very hands-on approach, onsite for much of the remodel, and her approach appeared to be reflected in the quality of the work her contractors performed.
Please feel free to contact me for any additional comments or with any questions."
