MEREDA Index shows Maine's real estate industry reaches highest level in ten years, signifies "worker gap"
 
"The second quarter of 2016 saw the Maine real estate industry reach the highest level in ten years, led by a 10% growth in the residential component” said Rick McCarthy, consultant with Eaton Peabody and board member with the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA). McCarthy made his remarks at MEREDA’s sold out conference in mid-January, while unveiling The MEREDA Index, the economic indicator that measures the health of the state’s real estate sector.

But, all told, The MEREDA Index, which covers the middle two quarters of 2016, came in slightly lower than recent editions, at 93. The highwater mark gains were not sustained throughout, with a 4% drop toward the end of the period," said economist Dr. Charles Colgan, of the University of Southern Maine, who compiled the report for MEREDA.

“Overall, The MEREDA Index has grown in the last years, though we are seeing the first plateau since the post-2007 recovery," said Paul Peck, MEREDA president, a real estate developer and an attorney at Drummond & Drummond.
