New home starts jump to new highs nationally

April 17, 2018

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!
