Rising housing affordability issues continue to hinder single-family production even as total housing starts increased in November.
“The decline in single-family production over the last few months makes sense given the drop in our builder confidence index,” said NAHB Chairman Randy Noel, a custom home builder from LaPlace, La. “Builders are cautious to add inventory as housing affordability concerns are causing consumers to pause on making a home purchase.”
The Greater Hattiesburg Homebuilder Association, a chapter of the National Association of Home Builders, serves licensed builders, associates of the construction industry, and consumers in Marion, Lamar, Forrest, Covington and Perry counties. Our association focuses on formal builder education (MSBOC licensure and CPB certification), informing builders of market news,and giving builders the tools to respond to prospective legislation through our state counterpart, the Home Builders Association of Mississippi.
Membership in our association keeps builders accountable to consumers. The Greater Hattiesburg Home Builders Association is the name consumers trust when they look for a contractor.
