If you’re in the construction business boy do we a have a bit of good news for you: With a reported rise in building permits and an end of the winter weather in sight, builder confidence has increased in March.
In fact, according to the Census Bureau building permits were up 7.7 percent in February, although starts dropped slightly due to the harsh, cold weather seen in January and February.
So what does this mean for you?
It means that demand for new housing is still on the rise, which means that having the equipment to handle the demand is equally important.
And if you want to get the “hookup” on the best available used heavy equipment on the market, then Expert Heavy Equipment can help you do exactly that.
We know that sounds fine and dandy, but we also know that if you’re like most who are thinking about purchasing or even selling heavy equipment that you may still be a little cautious.
But here’s proof that NOW is the time to get a good deal while everyone else is sitting back waiting on a good deal to literally fall out of the sky: Building permits, according to news reports, were issued at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.02 million in February, an increase of 6.9 percent over the same period last year.
The rise in permits is wholly attributed to apartments in February. Permits to new apartments were up 27.6 percent to 407,000. Home completions rose during February 4.4 percent to 886,000.
The figure is 21.9 percent higher than the February 2013 rate.
