U.S. Census Bureau reports on population growth
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, "Flagler, Fla., located along the Atlantic coast between Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, was the nation’s fastest-growing county between July 1, 2003, and July 1, 2004."
Locally, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that "Los Angeles, Calif., continued to be the most populous county in the nation, with 9.9 million residents on July 1, 2004."
This is interesting data, particularly as it relates to the real estate market. Continued strong demand in some areas of the country have fueled prices. On the other hand, we do hear reports that some areas have "cooled" and demand is leveling off, or even declining. It would seem that population patterns would influence this as well.
