Gaithersburg Lakelands MD Local Market Tidbits:
Today I decided to bring you some news about the things that matters the most to our local real estate market
As you are aware, the real estate market is like the weather. The economic conditions within the area are the most influential on home prices and its stability
Sometimes even within neighboring counties, our local real estate market could be completely different.
For that reason we are focusing in Lakelands Gaithersburg. In a way this beautiful neighborhood area in Gaithersburg suffers an identity crisis because of its most popular neighbor “The Kentlands”
Yes, you may see disparities between these two neighborhoods but, most homeowners living on Lakelands are just happier that they don't get the negatives of being the most popular neighborhood in the area. Traffic can be a problem for the most part..while the Lakelands remain relatively quiet and serene..yet they still enjoy the same amenities.
Today, I would like to speak to you about Your Opportunity to Achieve the American Dream Keeps Getting Better
Forbes.com recently released the latest results of their American Dream Index, in which they measure “the prosperity of the middle class, and…examine which states best support the American Dream.”
The monthly index measures several different economic factors, including goods-producing employment, personal and commercial bankruptcies, building permits, startup activity, unemployment insurance claims, labor force participation, and layoffs.
The national index score was rounded out to 100.0 in January as a baseline for comparison and it rose the fourth straight month in a row to 101.8.
Alaska, coming in at 89.4, represented the lowest score on the index due in part to the recent collapse in oil prices. In contrast, Wyoming came in with the highest score at 115.1. The full results can be seen in the map below.
Forbes Senior Editor Kurt Badenhausen explained why many states saw a boost in the index last month:
“The American Dream Index rose for the fourth straight month to 101.8 propelled by gains in goods-producing jobs and building permits, as well as declines in unemployment claims and mass layoffs.
Goods-producing jobs (manufacturing, mining, construction and agriculture) were up for the ninth straight month in May…Building permits rose for the fourth straight month compared to the prior year.”
The American Dream, for many, includes being able to own a home of one’s own. With the economy improving in many areas of the country, that dream can finally become a reality.
