“The market was strong this last year. We set a record in Omaha for number of homes sold,” said Mike Pettid, a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate. “There were more than 12,000 homes sold. New construction was up 25 percent year over year for 2013. At the same time, new-construction inventory dropped by 26 percent.” In other words, the number of newly-constructed, move-in ready homes decreased.
While 2013 was a good year for real estate, 2014 looks to be even better.
