McDermott said that all the factors involved in a healthy housing sales market are still there.

Interest rates are low and Missouri's population is continuing to grow, and Missouri's economy is extremely diverse.

McDermott said that the housing industry was so strong that it is impossible to compare this years numbers with last years.
