Confusion in the Numbers

Mark Oliver, MD of H+H, discusses how after the deepest and longest house building depression in history we are now, thankfully, experiencing an upturn. The latest estimate from the Construction Products Association predicts that by the end of this year there will be 138,139 new home starts. That’s an increase of 16.7 per cent on last year and a jump of 29.5 per cent since the darkest days of the recession in 2009 when there were only 106,635 new home starts.
