Home Sales Up From Last Year, Keeping Positive in 2010

It has been a tough past few years for many people in this Nation. Job loss, increased foreclosures, bail-outs, stockmarkets at all time low and economic panic. I am fortunate to live in Texas, where I feel the news has been more in a positive, consistent tone. I get articles on the Austin and Texas markets on a frequent basis and I am happy to see that Austin home sales are up 5% from last year. Condos are still being built downtown, and job growth in Texas tops the nation in the last decade.

I just wanted to take some time and share these articles I found in the Austin business journal with you. Here is to a positive, "it will only get better from here" 2010.
