Housing Starts Hit Pre-Recession Levels

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015

Nationally, US home building hit the highest level since November 2007. US Commerce Department said housing starts rose 20.2% in April from the prior month to a seasonally adjusted 1.135 million. This is the greatest percentage increase since February 1991. The issuance of new building permits which gives insight to future construction is up 10%.

 

Housing starts rose 16.7% on single-family units, which represent two-thirds of the market. This shows a wide base to this expanse and the most since January 2008.

 

Condos, Co-Ops and multifamily units are up 27.2%. This is good news for the overall US Economy as construction of homes creates jobs for contractors, electricians, plumbers, masons, pool contractors, landscapers, decorators, furniture, and much more!

Judi honored at Manhattan Media’s Privet Hedge Awards Dinner

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Judi Desiderio, President and Chief Executive Office of Town & Country Real Estate, was awarded the prestigious award of “Broker’s Broker" at Manhattan Media's Privet Hedge Awards Dinner last night held at Sebonac Golf Club. This was the 2nd annual Privet Hedge Awards which honors excellence in Hamptons real estate. For Judi to be named "Broker’s Broker" is truly a testament to not only her unyielding success in real estate on the East End, but as well her admiration by colleagues and peers. “I was so surprised to receive the “Broker’s Broker” Privet Hedge Award for Excellence in Real Estate. I’m much more comfortable giving the awards, rather than receiving…When I looked around the room I saw many Brokers whom I’ve worked with in my 34 year tenure. So many talented, experienced, smart real estate professionals.. it was truly an honor. Thank you!” stated Judi afterwards.

 

With top producers from every real estate firm in the Hamptons present, the evening was fun-filled, full and enjoyed by all. Special thanks to the Manhattan Media, publisher of Avenue, Avenue on the Beach, Behind The Hedges and Dan’s Papers, for hosting such a special celebration in an equally spectacular venue.
