What does this mean for you in the Triangle?
Positive GDP growth means our regional economy is growing. Businesses are producing and selling more products. The housing market figures into the GDP in two ways: with the construction of new single- and multi-family homes and the remodeling many undertake, as well as all the money spent on housing services, such a rent and utilities.
Positive growth will likely lead to an increase in pending home sales across the Triangle.
