New home starts jump to new highs nationally

by | Apr 17, 2018 | Market Reports

You’ve seen the cranes and construction sites here in Oregon but we’re not alone. Housing starts and permits for housing are on the rise. With a solid economy and a growing population the need for more housing just keeps growing.

MarkerWatch just published a great graph showing the last 18 years of housing start data. We are still well below the number of homes being built in 2004-2007 but our population is larger. This should lead to continued expansion.

Looking for a new home? We work with builders all over Portland, Oregon so give us a call – your home might be under construction as we speak!
