A recent study from Forbes ranked Houston as one of the cities “doing the most to address the U.S. housing shortage.”
According to the report, homebuilding across the country has declined by almost 25 percent from 2011 to 2015. The study looked at which cities were bucking that trend based on the number of newly permitted multifamily and single-family units going up in each city between 2011 and 2014. It then compared the number of new units as a percentage of each cities’ 2010 housing base.
