    Welcome back Team!

    In 2013 we continue what we started. We build upon the momentum of those who ran the race and set the pace before us. NAREB is excited to turn back the pages of time and give you a sneak peek into the amazing accomplishments and goals that we as a team (leadership, members, partners, affiliates, vendors, supporters, family and friends) were able to achieve.

    We are proud to present the first e-zine of the year entitled 2012 A Year In Review. Without your help none of this would have been possible. A team wins when individuals step up.

    As I round the bend and gain momentum in the turn as your 27th President, I catch my second breath and put my head into the winds, the winds of resistance... winds of doubt... the winds of hope, and change, forever moving forward. We can see the finish line from here. Head down, setting the pace, I hear the wind in my ears. My lungs full, my heart pounds, were in the race for change. Our leg is almost done. Can you hear the cheers... I can. Its me cheering you on.

    Lets keep moving forward. Lets continue to grow. Lets continue to do what we do best. The race is ours to win. Enjoy this issue of Cornerstone, NAREBs best of the best.

    God Speed!

    Respectfully,

    LaVaughn Henry

    While it is true that the economy has continued to expand moder-ately, the labor market continues to be a source of increasing frustration. After starting the year with an average of 225K jobs being creating each month during the first quarter, payroll employment growth has slowed to a third of that level during the second quarter averaging 73K during April and May. Addition-ally, the decline in the unemploy-ment rate, which was so evident during the second half of 2011, has all but stalled this year. After starting the year at 8.3 percent, it has declined by a mere 0.1 percentage points to 8.2 percent. On net, while any improvement is welcome improvement, it remains the case that for the economy to pick up any discern-ible steam, improvement in the condition of the labor market will have to accelerate substan-tially.Pressure continues to build from outside forces the European Debt Crisis and slowdown in the Chinese economy that risk having a material effect on our economic growth in the U.S. Namely, the Eurozone and China are significant trading

    partners with the United States. The Eurozone alone accounts for more than 20 percent of the nations exports, and with Chinas ever-growing middle class, which alone is already estimated to exceed 300 million, larger than the whole of the United States population, simultane-ous declines in their aggregate demand can negatively, and possibly significantly, reduce our GDP, hurting our labor markets further. The expectation is that this impact is likely to be muted as U.S. growth in consumer demand, representing more than 70 percent of the total U.S. economy, continues to show some strength.Finally, despite some signs of improvement, the national hous-ing market remains moribund. Data through March 2012, the S&P/Case-ShillerHome Price Indices, the leading measure of U.S. home prices, showed that all three of its headline composites ended the first quarter of 2012 at new post-crisis lows. Additionally, fore-closures remain

    significantly elevated above normal levels, and the amount of shadow inventory, remains at sufficiently high enough levels to put significant down-ward pressure on prices. For there to be any significant and last-ing improvement in the residential real estate market, it will first have to be preceded by improvement in the labor market, sparking stronger growth in con-

    sumer incomes and demand, and ultimately growth in housing demand.
