Housing starts in Tennessee
Tennessee’s housing report for the first quarter of 2019 shows mixed signals; single-family permits trended downward even as the economy and job market continued on solid footing. That’s the finding of the latest housing report from the MTSU Business and Economic Research Center. The report shows single-family permits dropping 9.4 percent in the past year. But there was a 107 percent jump in multifamily permits. Meanwhile, housing prices continue to rise across the state. The most significant increases were in Nashville and Knoxville, both up 8 percent. The least change was in the Kingsport-Bristol MSA, with an increase of 1.8 percent. Multifamily permits increased by nearly 1 percent. Compared to the South and the United States, Tennessee displayed the most significant negative growth for single-family permits over the year. But, Tennessee exhibited the most significant annual growth for both multifamily and total permits.
