Ottawa County Area New Home Construction up 20% YTD vs. 2014

New Home Starts Up 20%

New Home Starts Up 20%

The Lakeshore area west of Grand Rapids Michigan, which consists primarily Ottawa County, but also the Muskegon and Allegan  areas has had 590 new single family homes started so far in 2015.  Since opening our Holland office, we have been tracking this information on builders and new home starts.  This is good news for area builders, job seekers, and also home buyers because there is pretty low inventory of homes on the market right now.  Despite this growth, we are still only building about half the homes we were before the recession, so we shouldn’t necessarily expect the market to be overheated.
