Residential Permitting Activity Continues its Recovery from the Recession


Residential permitting activity, as measured by the valuation of permits for privately owned housing, continues its recovery from the recession. Overall, the value of permits for all housing rose to $17.36 billion, which is an all-time high. The value of permits for the first four months of 2014 was over $58 billion, a 9 percent rise over the same period in 2013. The value of single family home permits rose 4 percent in the first four months of 2014 compared with the same period in 2013, but permitting for large multi-family projects was particularly strong, with the value of permits for projects of 5-units and higher rising 36 percent in the first four months of 2014 over the same period in 2013, with a total value again approaching $4 billion (the all-time high was December’s total of over $4.2 billion). Note that while not all housing is captured by permit authorizations, the Census Bureau indicates that 95 percent of the U.S. population resides in permit-issuing jurisdictions.
