Good news on the general economy for a change – the nationwide unemployment rate has fallen below 9 percent — it’s now 8.9 percent, marking a two-year low. Keeping in mind that the unemployment rate was at 9.8 percent just in November, this represents a fairly significant drop. Good news for the spring real estate market? Time will tell …

FYI – Mass. unemployment rate remains unchanged at 8.3 percent. Mass., however, has tended to stay well ahead of the nationwide numbers, so look for this rate to change too in the near future.
