June 5, 2015: Census Bureau – Number and Sq Ft of SFD Housing Completions 1999-2014

Wolfe Jackson, CFO

Interesting data from the Census Bureau’s annual report on the Characteristics of New Housing Units Completed/Sold for 2014 (based on the data collected from the Survey of Construction).

It’s no surprise that we’re building a lot less single family homes than we were in 1999 or 2000.

It’s a bit surprising to see that the percentage of each size-range of homes less than 2400 sq feet are all down, while the percentage of each size-range of homes more than 2400 sq feet are all up.
