10 Housing Markets Fueled by Job Growth

10 Housing Markets Fueled by Job Growth

Job growth is propelling home appreciation in several housing markets across the country. Nearly 3 million jobs have been created in the past 12 months, notably among the 25 to 34 age group too.

“With more jobs, more people in the labor force, and higher wages materializing, this spring’s strong pace for home sales will continue,” writes Jonathan Smoke, chief economist of realtor.com, in recent commentary.
