Whittaker Homes Out-Performs The National Average In New Home Sales For July


Government figures released today reveal further evidence that the recovery of the housing market continues to move forward. New U.S. home sales rose for the fourth straight month beating all expectations in July with a 9.6 percent increase. That figure represents good news for the country and indicates that the bottom of the housing market may have indeed already been reached.

Closer to home, St. Charles based Whittaker Homes announced their own figures for the month of July in which they posted an increase in sales of 38 percent or four times the national average. “It’s a pretty astounding number,” said Whittaker Homes President, Greg Whittaker, “ I think the home-buying public is regaining their confidence and realizing that there are some great buying opportunities out there.” Whittaker Homes own Deals of a Lifetime Events have proven very successful contributing to the overall strength of sales recorded this summer. “Interest rates remain low,” continued Whittaker. “Low rates combined with the $8,000 Federal Stimulus Tax Credit and the significant savings we are offering have really electrified our buyers.” That might help explain why traffic in Whittaker Sales Centers was up 200 percent in July as compared to the same period last year.

Come see for yourself why Whittaker Homes has out-performed the National average with over 200 families choosing Whittaker for their new home since January 1st 2009.
