Huntsville Real Estate Sales Statistics – July 2009

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On August 20, 2009

Recent announcements from the Fed regarding a stall on short-term interest rates came as no surprise to most. Five and one quarter percent is where the interest rate has remained since last June. With an eye toward inflation, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke recites a familiar statement blaming slowed growth partially on the “substantial cooling of the housing market.”

While housing may be cool in other areas, nothing could be farther from the truth in the Huntsville, Alabama real estate market. In fact, as the rest of the country has suffered a decline of 19% in housing starts, Huntsville’s real estate sales have remained stable, according to the American Chronicle.
