2011 - A Year For Recovery
Not too many of us are going to miss 2010.

Simply put: our industry took another one on the chin. But enough on that. Let's not dwell on the negative. The good news is, after two years of recession, 2011 is projected as a year of recovery. Construction industry prognosticators agree there is no way to go but up. The momentum has already begun to shift.

• Office, Retail and Lodging segments are set to improve according to the 2011 Real Estate Forecast from Grubb & Ellis, a commercial real estate services and investment firm.
• Economic activity in the manufacturing sector will continue to expand, according to the latest "Manufacturing ISM Report on Business" issued by the Institute for Supply Management (ISM).
• According to ISM, the overall economy has been growing for 20 consecutive months and manufacturng for 17 months.
• All four major indices – Dow Jones Industrials, S&P 500, NASDAQ and the TSE composite – recorded latest 52-week highs in the final days of 2010.
• December marked the 18th consecutive month of growth in the new orders index.
• Department of Labor U.S. initial jobless claims dropped at year's end: the current lower levels indicate higher levels of employment.
• The two biggest factors holding back recovery – depressed residential real estate and high unemployment – have been feeding on each other. With employment on the mend, the residential real estate picture will improve.

Still, recovery won't happen overnight. It's a slow process.
