New single-family home permits in Southwest Ohio continued to be bullish through October, reported the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati (HBA). Overall, single-family permits increased 8.3% in all four Southwest Ohio counties through October. Last month’s increase was 7.6%, said the HBA.
Again, Butler County experienced the largest increase, up over 14.7%, followed by Clermont County, with a 13.8% increase. Hamilton County was up by 4.5%, and Warren County permits increased by 4.8%.
A total of 2,695 single-family permits were issued through October of this year, compared to 2,488 in 2019, representing an 8.3% increase for the year.
“The typical seasonal market slowdown has been delayed, said Dan Dressman, HBA Executive Director. The lack of inventory continues to plague the market, but builders are ramping up to meet the current and future market demands,” he added.
