There’s no question the economic downturn has been hard on house builders. But at least one BIAW-affiliated official is optimistic. Here’s David Roewe, executive director of the Building Industry Association of Clark County, the local unit of the BIAW, in a Columbian business section article:
Roewe predicted home sales would improve after the first of the year and continue to pick up in the second quarter of 2009.
“Springtime is when you’ll see the release of money, with the new (presidential) administration in office,” he said.
See, even some BIAW folks are rooting for President-elect Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress to succeed. Now that’s refreshing.
