As more potential homeowners search for the home of their dreams, contractors are doing their best to keep up with demand.
However, it looks like new-home construction has had quite the boost – builders began construction on new homes in the U.S. at a pace of 1.37 million in November, which was a 3.2% increase from October and a 13.6% increase from a year ago.
These stats have surged for both single-family homes and multifamily structures.
