Current Trends in Real Estate

Commercial Property News, CPN, had a full page in it's recent June 1, 2007 edition, dedicated to data trends in Real Estate Performance. Throughout all of calendar 2006, Apartments ranked number one with those choosing to invest in Real Estate...29%. For the three months ended Feb 07, Apartment construction starts rose 32.1% over the same period last year. As far as leasing, the first calendar quarter is forecasted to be almost 71% higher in absorption/occupancy than last year and the vacancy rate is projected to be lower than both 2006 and 2005 at 5.7%.

Trends continue toward growth in multifamily housing. As vacant multifamily inventory continues to decline, the lending market remains conservative, and housing prices remain relatively stable; Barrier sees these trends toward multifamily as direct support towards a continuing growth path.Fire-rated sheathing, town homes, multi-family construction, housing market, small cap, otcbb, ibtgf, barrier, blazeguard, mycoguard, fire-rated paint, intumescent paint, mold, mildew, fire-retardant plywood, frt, sips, structurally insulative panels, fire-rated wall assemblies, commercial modular, modular home construction, green building products, LEED,
