New Home Construction Demand Is Increasing


Per a Business Courier article, the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati is reporting a 17% increase in new home sales for the first six months of 2013 as compared to 2012.

New Construction Trends

  • Smaller homes (national average square footage is down 13%)
  • Private outdoor spaces and connecting indoor/outdoor access – People want privacy when they are outside and an extension from the house to their outdoor spaces
  • Covered outdoor rooms – Covered outdoor rooms become a second family room and feature comfortable couches and flat screens
  • Larger garages
  • Home offices
  • Technology to support mobile devices, tablets and all charging needs
  • More seating in the media rooms
  • Larger kitchens with room for entertaining
  • Dogs – 37% of U.S. households have a pooch. Homeowners are looking for doggie doors, pet showers and other pet-styled items for the home!
