“The chief economist for the National Association of Realtors (NAR) believes the housing recovery is underway. In the last few month of reporting, new home sales rose 3.3% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 343,000. Home resales hit a two-year high and, compared to April last year, overall sales nationally were up nearly 10%.”   Now that’s some good news, especially for the Estates at Palmer Creek and Monroe County where new homes continue to be built, new families are beginning their dreams and the City of Columbia, IL continues to grow and embrace quality housing and a community that fosters long-term home ownership, first-class schools and great amenities!!!
