SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSING BOOM- New York (AP) There is a boom in housing in certain areas of the nation, set off by general price stability, rising incomes, and falling interest rates.
> In Detroit, once considered the capital of the "Rust Belt", single-family permits grew last year at a 45% rate, highest of any big city. Weston Edwards, an executive of Loomis & Nettleton, calls the move-up market the strongest housing trend of all.
> Near Princeton, N.J., garden-apartment condominiums that cost $95,000 when new resell two months later for $115,000.
Realtor economists suggest that if interest rates and inflation can be held in check- and their long-range forecasts suggest that, given wise fiscal and monetary policy, maybe the [up and down] cycle will be blunted.
