new homes in LoganThere was an article in the Herald Journal yesterday Logan Ranked 16th nationally in the number of construction jobs lost between November of 2008 and November 2009. Nearly one out of every four construction jobs that were available a year and a half ago, now do not exist.
On the residential real estate side, we are seeing that new home construction is way down from what it was a couple years ago. There is also a big shift in the type of being built. A few years ago all the new builders were building huge immaculate homes. Now, the major Cache Valley builders are focusing on affordable starter homes.
The good news is that because the population of Logan is expected go grow, construction will also grow. So although it might take a few years, one day the number of available construction jobs in Logan will be back.
