Positive economic news is starting to float around the news channels more frequently.
This article from the Jacksonville Business Journal, is calling for the end of the recession in the third quarter and even a stabilization of the housing market. The article goes on to state that they expect a slight increase in housing values in 2010!
Additional positive news, Jacksonville is seeing some signs of a drop in the unemployment rate. This graph from Google shows the unemployment rate for Jacksonville compared to Florida and the US overall. Interesting to see the last high point in the 90's and the 8 years of falling unemployment that followed. Will history repeat?
Jacksonville.com reports this story, as many economic indicators are starting to stabilize and "even the housing market appears to be stabilizing".
All great news for home owners in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra. (and for Jacksonville Realtors!)
