Texas Dominates in Housing Permits

Texas had the highest number of single-family housing permits in 2012, with Houston and Dallas leading the pack for the second year in a row, according to Johns Burns Real Estate Consulting and the U.S. Census Bureau. 

Texas metros made up 25 percent of the places that landed on the list of top single-family permit markets for 2012. Texas markets have performed strongly lately on several fronts, including double-digit percentage gains in existing-home sales, rising demand from buyers, and restricted resale inventories, according to John Burns Real Estate Consulting. 

The following are the top 12 single-family permit markets from 2012: 

  1. Houston
  2. Dallas
  3. Phoenix
  4. Atlanta
  5. Washington, D.C.
  6. Austin, Texas
  7. Orlando, Fla.
  8. Raleigh, N.C.
  9. Charlotte, N.C.
  10. Las Vegas
