This pessimism has been seen through The National Association of Homebuilders‘ Housing Market Index. This index measures the confidence of homebuilders towards the future of new home construction. That is, as the demand for new homes grows, so does the home construction industry.

A score of 50 or less means that more builders view market conditions as poor rather than favorable. These scores are what we’ve seen since 2006, reaching a low of less than 10 in 2009. This means that, in 2009, over 90% of homebuilders had a negative sentiment towards the market. Well, that’s understandable.

In this month’s index, however, we are finally seeing signs of a turn around in the housing market. For the first time since 2006, the index hit a score greater than 50…52 to be exact. Do you think these index results represent a real move towards progress in the housing market?
