Huntsville AL Real Estate Market Trends – Nov 2011

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On December 21, 2011

A recent survey by, the consumer website from the National Association of Realtors®, finds that jobs and the housing market will be two of the most important issues for voters in the 2012 election. Nearly one-third of respondents said housing will be the top issue on their mind when they head to the polls next November.

Respondents were asked “What issue area will have the greatest impact on your vote in 2012?” National security, healthcare, and energy/environment trailed housing and unemployment by wide margins:

  • Jobs/unemployment – 54 percent
  • Housing – 27 percent
  • National security – 8 percent
  • Healthcare – 4 percent
  • Energy/Environment – 2 percent
  • Other – 4 percent

With unemployment still high, it is easy to see why so many Americans are concerned about the job market. However, employment and the housing market are inextricably linked because economic growth and job creation cannot occur without a housing recovery.

Now take a look at the Huntsville AL real estate sales for November.
