The National Association of Home Builders released its ever-expanding list of improving U.S. housing markets Thursday, but the Norwich-New London market wasn't one of the 274 metro areas identified by an indexing measure that takes into account housing permits, employment and house prices.
The New Haven and Hartford areas were on the list, while Bridgeport fell from the ranks of improving markets in March, according to the index. The index identified a net gain of 15 markets that have improved enough to be added to the list since February.
More than 75 percent of U.S. metropolitan areas are now seen as improving.
