BIA Comments on October Building Stats 2016
Vancouver, Wash – (November 23, 2016) – Single Family Residential (SFR) permits issued in October showed a 15% increase over SFR permits issued in the same month last year. 128 SFR permits were issued this month and 111 SFR permits were issued in October of 2015.
“The hungry housing market has treated the construction industry, and supporting companies like RailPro, very well over the last few years. An increase in volume was extremely noticeable back in 2014, then we saw another boost of growth in 2015 and find ourselves again closing out a record year in 2016,” shares Jeremy Kushner, President of RailPro and a Subcontractor Director on the BIA Board.
“There is a consistent growth of demand for new places for people to call home. And the BIA is working tirelessly to champion a business climate for builders that allows them to create homes for our communities in all price points.”
