Florida Annual Residential Construction Review – 2018

An HBW report on new residential construction permits in the Sunshine State from January through December 2018

FL Residential Construction Permits 2018

Residential construction in Florida is on a high, and every year it just keeps getting better.  Considering the fact that Florida’s population grows by nearly 1,000 people every day (source: StateofFlorida.com), it is no wonder that last year housing starts reflected a year-over-year increase of 14%, resulting in more than 83,000 new permits on file with HBW.

The regions that experienced the greatest growth in new residential construction last year include the eastern and southwestern portions of the state:  Northeast Florida experienced a massive 27% year-over-year increase in housing starts last year, resulting in nearly 14,600 new permits; Southeast Florida had a year-over-year spike of 25% (9,911 permits); and the southwestern region experienced a 19% year-over-year increase in housing starts that resulted in approximately 15,700 new residential construction permits.

Areas that held higher concentrations of new residential construction activity include the west, southwest and central areas of the state. West Florida ranked #1 for total new permits having more than 17,300 housing starts, reflecting a 9% year-over-year increase in new home construction.  Southwest Florida ranked second-highest with 15,700 new permits, and Central Florida was not far behind with a 2% year-over-year increase that resulted in approximately 15,280 new residential construction permits for the year.

From a county perspective, there were a few counties that caught our attention due to high levels of new construction activity.  In Central Florida, Orange County held the highest concentration of new residential construction in comparison to all counties reviewed statewide. Last year, Orange County experienced a 9% year-over-year increase in new home construction, resulting in nearly 6,530 permits in 2018.  In the western region, Hillsborough County ranked second-highest out of the Florida counties reviewed with more than 5,300 housing starts (10% annual increase).  In the southwest, Lee County demonstrated an impressive 20% year-over-year increase in housing starts, resulting in more than 5,000 new residential construction permits on file with HBW.

When breaking down the annual permitting data further and isolating higher value (>$500k) construction projects, the greatest amount of higher value housing starts could be found in Central and Southeast Florida.  Central Florida had the highest concentration of residential construction permits valued above $500k; with a 5% year-over-year increase, there were nearly 1,270 higher value housing starts in Central Florida last year.  In the southeast, there was a 15% annual surge in residential construction valued above $500k, resulting in approximately 1,200 new higher value permits on file with HBW in 2018.

Year in Review: Florida Swimming Pool Construction 2018

An HBW review of new swimming pool construction permits in Florida from January thru December 2018

FL Swimming Pool Permits 2011-2018

New swimming pool construction continues to rise annually in the Sunshine State.  Since 2013, new pool construction has been producing more permits in the HBW database every year, and in 2018 Florida experienced a 4% year-over-year increase in swimming pool starts, resulting in nearly 25,000 new permits on file with HBW.

Out of the six major regions reviewed (Central, West, Southeast, Southwest, Northeast, Northwest), the southwestern region held the greatest amount of new pool construction activity.  With a 4% year-over-year increase in new permits, there were nearly 6,600 swimming pool starts in Southwest Florida last year.  Southwest counties that held the highest concentration of new permits include Lee (2,098 permits), Collier (1,388 permits) and Manatee (1,273).  When looking at the greatest annual spikes of new construction in the area, Charlotte County was a standout having exhibited a 19% year-over-year increase in swimming pool starts.

The area that ranked second-highest for total new pool permits is Southeast Florida.  The southeast has officially climbed out of the minor dip in swimming pool construction it experienced in 2017 to having rebounded with a 10% year-over-year increase in 2018.  Out of the 4,940 new pool permits in the southeast, more than half originated from Miami (1,310 permits) and Palm Beach (1,689).

Another area that experienced a 10% year-over-year increase in new pool construction was West Florida.  In the west, there were approximately 4,480 pool starts last year.  Hillsborough County led over all others for new construction having exhibited a 13% year-over-year increase in new pool construction that resulted in 1,485 new permits.  The western county that experienced the highest level of growth in new pool construction is Pasco County.  In Pasco, pool construction has been on the rise since 2013, and last year the area exhibited a 15% year-over-year increase in pool starts, resulting in 837 permits for the year.

When moving our focus to the northwest, we found the greatest increase in new pool construction.  Since 2013, swimming pool construction has been greatly increasing on an annual basis in the northwestern region of Florida, and last year was no exception.  In 2018, the northwest demonstrated a 13% year-over-year increase in new pool construction, resulting in 2,273 total permits for the year.

Areas that were either on par with the previous year or fell just below on new pool construction included Central and Northeast Florida.  After a five-year growth pattern in Central Florida, last year swimming pool construction experienced a year-over-year decline of 7%, resulting in 4,215 total permits; that being stated, the central County of Osceola did not reflect the area’s pattern as it exhibited a 9% year-over-year increase in new pool construction, resulting in 1,165 new permits.  In the northeastern region, new pool construction appears to have held steady and leveled off in 2018 as there were just over 2,432 new permits added to the HBW database – approximately the same amount as 2017.  The bulk of new pool construction in the northeast took place in the counties of St. Johns (841 permits, +3%) and Duval (709 permits, +19%).

Atlanta Annual Residential Construction Review – 2018

With more than 24,400 residential construction permits in 2018, Atlanta’s high rate of new home construction has held steady for two years in a row.

ATL Housing Starts 2012-2018

From 2012 to 2017, Atlanta area housing starts had been sustaining a healthy annual climb, and in 2018 this climb appears to have leveled out, for now.  Last year, new home construction in the Metro Atlanta area held steady and in line with 2017, resulting in nearly 24,420 new residential construction permits on file with HBW.  While there were no major increases in new residential construction over the year, this is not necessarily a sign of things slowing down.  Atlanta continues to be listed as one of the fastest growing U.S. cities, and earlier this year, Forbes ranked it #11 for one of the best places for business and careers.  The Atlanta metro has the fifth largest population in the U.S. with 5.9 million residents and is considered to be a top business city and a primary transportation hub of the southeastern U.S. Additionally, Atlanta has seen the job market increase by 2.2% over the last year, and future job growth over the next ten years is predicted to be 38.5%, which is higher than the US average of 38.0%.

Based on HBW’s Building Activity Trend Report for new residential construction in Atlanta, the greatest year-over-year increases and growth in residential construction for 2018 could be found in counties including Dawson (+64%), Walton (+74%) and Carroll (+64%).  Walton County’s growth was most notable as it appears to be quickly recovering from the major drop (-36%) in residential construction that it experienced in 2017.  On the other hand, housing starts in the counties of Dawson and Carroll have been rapidly climbing since 2012 and continue to be counties to watch.

On the opposite end of the growth spectrum, there were a few counties that did not fare as well this past year.  Counties such as Dekalb and Clayton had experienced annual decreases in residential construction ranging from 32% to 55%.  For Clayton County, this is the second year in a row that the area is exhibiting signs of a decline in new residential construction.  On the other hand, Dekalb County had been experiencing significant annual increases in housing starts since 2013, making last year’s drop unexpected and not indicative of a pattern at this point.

When looking at the areas with the highest concentration of housing starts, Gwinnett County continues to be a standout year after year; despite the 6% year-over-year decrease in new residential construction last year, Gwinnett still ranked #1 for total housing starts having 3,451 new permits on file with HBW.  Next in line was Fulton County – With a 4% year-over-year increase in new residential construction, Fulton County ranked second-highest for total new permits (2,558 permits).  Coming very close to Fulton and ranking #3 for total housing starts was Forsyth County; with a 4% year-over-year decrease in residential construction, there were 2,393 new permits on file for Forsyth County during 2018.

When reviewing higher value residential construction (homes over $500k), Fulton County continued to be the leading area.  Last year, there were more than 350 new homes with values in excess of $500k in Fulton County, making it the leader for higher value residential construction in the Metro Atlanta area.

Information utilized for the graphs and above listed figures for metro Atlanta residential construction was directly derived from HBW construction data reports.

A Year in Review – Atlanta Swimming Pool Construction 2018

An HBW report on new swimming pool construction permits in the Atlanta area for 2018

Atlanta Pool Permits 2012 thru 2018

Since 2013, swimming pool construction has been on the rise in the Metro Atlanta area.  While the overall annual increase in new swimming pool construction was nominal (+1%) in the Atlanta area last year, the upward trend is still holding steady.  In 2018, the slight annual increase in new pool permits resulted in nearly 2,250 new pool permits being added to the HBW database.

Counties that have the highest concentration of new swimming pool construction activity include Fulton and Cobb.  Fulton County exhibited a year-over-year increase of 6% in new pool construction, resulting in nearly 420 pool starts, and while new swimming pool activity in Cobb County was down by 6% since the previous year, it still ranked second-highest for new swimming pool construction having more than 285 pool starts last year.  Other counties with higher levels of new pool construction include Gwinnett (221 permits, +12%) and Cherokee (198 permits, -4%).  Here is a closer look at how the top ranked Atlanta-area counties for new pool construction stacked up from 2017-2018.

ATL Top 5 Counties for Total Pool Permits (2017 vs. 2018)

When looking at the year ahead, we reviewed Metro Atlanta counties for highest levels of growth and potential.  For example, while Walton County was on the lower end of total swimming pool starts (92 permits), it has recovered from the major drop it experienced in 2017 to now having an annual increase of nearly 120% in new pool construction (YTD-2018).  Another county on a growth track is Hall.  Since 2014, Hall County has been exhibiting annual increases ranging from 19% to 30% in pool starts; last year, there were nearly 110 swimming pool starts in Hall County, reflecting a 23% annual increase in new pool construction.  Similar and consistent growth also took place in Coweta County.  Since 2014, the area has consistently experienced increases in new swimming pool construction ranging from 3% to 31%; in 2018, Coweta County was back on the mid to higher end of its upswing with an 18% annual increase, resulting in nearly 185 new swimming pool permits for the area.
