New Builds in Colorado Springs Heat Up – Permits up 33% Year Over Year

As the market for Colorado Springs homes heats up, the number of permits for Single Family homes continues to rise. March marks the 15th straight month that the number of permits has increased and shows a nearly 33% increase from March of 2012.

From The Gazette:

Single-family building permits issued to area homebuilders in Colorado Springs and El Paso County totaled 227 in March, a nearly one-third increase over the same month last year, according to a Pikes Peak Regional Building Department report Monday. Permits now have increased for 15 straight months on a year-over-year basis.

For the first quarter of 2013, single-family building permits totaled 625, a 70.3 percent jump over the same period in 2012. It was the best first quarter for any year since 2007.
