Half of US Homes Built before 1980
The median age of owner-occupied homes is 37 years, according to the latest data from the 2016 American Community Survey. Compared to a median age of 31 years in 2005, the U.S. owner-occupied housing stock is aging gradually. This aging trend is primarily because of modest gains in residential construction over the past decade.

This aging housing stock signals a growing remodeling market, as old structures normally need to add new amenities, or repair/replace old components. Rising home prices also encourage home owners to spend more on home improvement. Moreover, the number of owner households has been rising since the third quarter of 2016.

Homes will soon rise in Stapleton’s 12th and final neighborhood, marking the beginning of the end of a two-decade boom for single-family home construction in Denver.

Developer Forest City is about to release the first of 1,300 single-family lots just south of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge on land that once hosted the northern runways of Stapleton International Airport.

A construction wave that started with Stapleton’s South End neighborhood in 2001 will bookend with the North End neighborhood. Once the last home on the last street is sold, probably some time in 2021, only commercial lots will be left.... Read more...
