In the Money Section of the Omaha World-Herald of December 20, 2012, Omaha metro was included in the healthiest housing market listing compiled by Trulia, a residential real estate information company. The three primary components of the rating included job growth, vacancy rates and foreclosure inventory. Inclusion on the listing bodes well for future housing demand in our area which should encourage new construction. Their research also showed that asking prices for homes in the area are up about 8 percent since last year. With the recent job growth improvement, this news continues to reinforce the good things occurring in our local market.
