DC residents wildly positive on the economy
In many states, the majority of residents believe the economy is getting worse. In the District of Columbia, however, the bulk of citizens feel that it is improving, according to new data from Gallup.The city, which has been recovering from the recession more quickly than almost any state, appears to be a island of economic positivity. If you are considering buying one of the homes for sale in Washington, DC, you may want to act quickly before everyone else in the country catches on to this economic idealism.
Gallup's Economic Confidence Index, which polls Americans every day, recently released its results from the first half of the year. Not only did the District demonstrate the highest rate of optimism, but it did so by a huge margin.
DC recorded a score of +29. The closest state, Minnesota, had a score of -6. Unsurprisingly, the District is in the midst of a strong employment period, and property values and homes sales are spiking.
If you want to live in the only region in the country that has a majority of economically positive residents, now may be the right time to consider purchasing real estate in Washington, DC.
