Builders Report Improving Spring Sales

Posted on June 9, 2010


Home builders are seeing their sales improve after the slowdown that followed the end of the home buyer tax credits.

JMP Securities analyst James Wilson says sales activities in California, Texas, and Arizona are approaching pre-April numbers in many markets. In some markets, builders are able to continue to raise prices and homes are selling at the strongest pace since before spring 2009, he says.

Wilson said he expects home sales to continue to be up and down, but he believes that the market has already hit bottom and is on the upswing.
