Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow yesterday. But it’s hard to believe that we are going to have an early spring when there is a couple of feet of snow on the ground and more on the way. Living in Maine means putting up with snow and all that comes with it and for most Mainers, it’s worth it.
Spring is the most promising time of the year for many industries, especially housing. For a home builder, spring is welcomed with open arms and not just because of the prospect of no longer dealing with heating homes under construction, plowing or posted roads, it’s the prospect of more business. Spring is typically when there is a flurry of real estate activity; homes go on the market, homes that have been on the market get more activity and it’s when people think of building a new home.
