Manufactured, modular and prefabricated home professionals know that how a home got to its location should not define a person or their dwelling.

Home Prices in Texas Rise above 2007 Levels

June 14th, 2013 Comments off

According to nationalmortggenews a report by the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank says home prices in Texas have recovered to seven percent above the pre-recession highpoint in 2007. One of just ten states to have reached that milestone, Texas is second only to North Dakota in the amount that today’s prices have exceeded the previous high. (As MHProNews has reported numerous times, the oil boom demand for worker housing and supportive services residences in western North Dakota has money flowing nearly like water.) CoreLogic says four of the top six markets for new homes are in Texas—Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin. The Federal Reserve Bank says “in-migration” is drawing people to the state seeking work. Existing home sales have risen 33 percent since the beginning of the housing recovery just over two years ago.

Energy Development Driving Growth in Canada

August 30th, 2012 Comments off

Stockhouse tells MHProNews the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) says the outlook for average rental apartment vacancies is not expect to change from the second quarter forecast of 2.2% for this year and 2.1% for 2012. Regionally for 2013 the lowest vacancy rates are forecast for Vancouver at 0.9%, Regina at 1.0%, and Calgary and Toronto both at 1.5%. Rental rates are expected to increase in 2013 in Calgary by 4.3%, in Edmonton by 3.8%, and in Vancouver by 3.1%. The strong energy development in Alberta is anticipated to drive the gross domestic product (GDP) in that province to 3.4% this year, and 3.2% in 2013, the best in the nation. Migration into Alberta because of the increased labor demand is the strongest since 1970, forecast to be 57,800 this year and 48,500 expected in 2013.
