April is New Homes Month

by Marc Austin Highfill 7. April 2011 06:36

When I think of April, I think of Spring, Easter, warm weather, pretty much anything but new homes.  The housing industry thinks new homes are worthy of their own month for a couple of good reasons.  There is a huge link between new home building and the health of the US economy.  Historically, 17% of the Gross Domestic Product is tied to the new jobs and income, purchase of goods and services, and revenue for local governments generated by new residential construction.  The employment effects are 50% in construction and 50% in other industries.  The income earned is spent and recycled in the local economy.  The bottom line is new homes strengthen the economy year round.  I guess they can have April too.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Kudos!|
