A Look at Housing Growth Since 1990
Housing has definitely increased over the years and a new analysis conducted by online deed preparation company Deedclaim dove into how much each state has grown.
Looking at the country overall, there was a 36.59% increase in available housing between 1990-2019. The current availability of housing across the nation is 2.35 units per capita. States that saw some of the highest increases during this near-30 year period include Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. On the other hand, states such as Rhode Island and West Virginia saw the least amount of growth.
Just between the last two decades, the U.S. saw a housing increase of right under 6% (5.99). Between this time, you can see a shift in which states have shown the most growth. Utah is still a key player in this time frame, but North Dakota saw a huge jump in housing, with a 19% increase, and Texas saw an over 12% increase.
