The New York real estate market is doing relatively well. How is New York doing compared to the country as a whole? Tom Fink illustrates by showing the nation sectioned into regions and shows the delinquency rate in each region.
From a real estate perspective, the best performing states are in the west coast region and a lot of the California market seems to be recovering nicely. The mid-Atlantic region, which encompasses NY, NJ and PA, is about middle of the pack on delinquency rates. New England continues to do well but is dominated by the Boston healthcare market. Outside of Boston, there are some challenges in the other areas. The west south central, which encompasses Texas, is “going gang busters… We have an energy rich economy today and Texas is an energy state, that’s why that area of the country is doing so well."
The best performance dates from a real estate perspective are the West Coast, so you've got the big drivers of Seattle, which is high technology, and then you've got a lot of the California market, which seems to be recovering nicely. You know, New England continues to do well, but again that's also dominated by the Boston health care market. That's what's absorbing a lot of the space up there. You get out of Boston, you have some challenges and some of the other regional markets there, and of course the west, south central, which encompasses Texas is going gangbusters. I mean we have an energy rich economy today, Texas is an energy state. That's why that area in the country is doing so well.
