Homebuilding is strong in East Texas

The homebuilders in east Texas are sending a message, "Stop listening to the national reports about construction jobs and new building rates, both areas are strong in Texas."

They may have slowed down like the rest of the country, but according to Mike Hineman, owner of Dream Homes in Lufkin, unlike other states, such as California and Florida, Texas didn't see a bubble; our prices stayed steady.

According to MSN Real Estate and Local Market Monitor, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Texas ranks as #2 in the best cities for rebuilding homeownership.

"This is the best time ever. The interest rates are incredibly low. They're not going to get any lower," Hineman said. At least, if you're doing it in the Lone Star State.
