Each month a report is issued to members of the Home Builders Association of Raleigh / Wake County. This month’s report covered activity in June 2012 as well as a January through June comparison 2011 vs 2012. Very nice progress on the home construction and renovation front. Did you know that if all permits pulled in the first six months of this year approximately 6777 jobs will be added to the local employment situation. That does not count the money added to the economy through increased spending at gas stations, convenience stores, restaurants, and grocery stores.
