Increase in Western States Permits Causes Nationwide Numbers to Surge

July 2, 2018
Beverley BevenFlorez-CDJ STAFF

The National Association of Home Builders’ Eye on Housing reported, in the first quarter of 2018, single-family home permits increased 8.4% over the April 2017 levels. In the year between April 2017 and April 2018, over 30 states featured single-family permit growth, with Colorado recording the highest rate of growth (34.2%). Texas and Florida led the U.S. in number of permits issued, while the lowest came from District of Columbia. According to Eye on Housing, the nationwide increase in permits “ is largely due to the aggregate increase in single-family permits across the Western states. Out of the 13 which are classified as Western states, nine states recorded single-family permit growth exceeding the national average.”
