ATTOM’s Building Permits Data for Houston, Texas
Houston, TX Experiences Fewer Building Permits
In Houston, however, building permits and residential starts increased, suggesting steady construction in the coming months. In August 2021, Houston had topped the national list for single-family housing permits for six straight months.
Manufacturers and construction firms are concerned. Projects are stalling because of material delays and a lack of truck drivers to transport materials. Materials that used to come within 12 to 15 weeks now have an estimated delivery time of six months.
Consequently, material prices are high. While lumber prices are dropping, steel-mill products, gypsum, and concrete have reached their highest prices in the summer of 2021.
These issues will affect property owner demand for building permits and will have a knock-on effect on the value of property. ATTOMs building permits data can show the trends in construction and remodeling and unlock the whole story of a property’s history.
