BUILDING PERMITS


The Building Permits table with data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows the annual number of single-family home building permits and the percentage growth since 2010 for the top 15 retirement cities.

Moderate housing growth for that new retirement destination is okay. Overbuilding or stagnation, of course, is not okay.

Gainesville, Florida ranks as the #1 city in permits with a 7% increase for 2016.
