It's safe to say that 2019 was a busy and very prosperous year for the United States, including record-breaking GDP growth periods. For those who do business in the country or are thinking of expanding their investment portfolio next year, the data is encouraging. Read on and see how the US economy is shaping up in 2019. 

Breaking records 

In July this year, economic expansion broke records (reaching 122 months of growth). Previously, it was 120 months, from March 1991 to March 2001. In the final projection before the 2016 elections, the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) estimated that real GDP would grow at an annual rate of 2.1%. The figures would refer to the first 11 quarters of a new administration.


Continued expansion of the US economy

The higher than expected GDP growth also gives US consumers a lot of confidence. Thus, real consumer spending grew by 2.9% at an annual rate in the third quarter, up from the 2.6% recorded in the previous four quarters. 


In the direction of this wheel of prosperity, unemployment is the lowest it has been since 1969. It is worth noting that the unemployment figure is falling and has been driven by the need for manpower for greater production. Thus, 73.7% of the workers entering employment came from the labor force and not from unemployment. In Orlando the figures are even more encouraging, with an unemployment rate of 2.8%.

In line with the trend, the coming months will also be positive, with wages expected to rise, enabling more Americans to enjoy the benefits of a growing economy. With a high GDP and an employed population, a very prosperous 2020 is expected in the United States. 

In the real estate market 

After promising data in relation to the other parameters that characterize a good economy, the real estate sector is no exception. Orlando in particular is proving to be an excellent place to invest in the United States. As the graph from the 2019 Lennar survey shows, homes in the region have appreciated by 112%, 104% more than the national average.
