Year-over-year single-family growth peaked in all small and large metro urban, suburban, and rural regional submarkets during the second quarter of 2021, and growth rates remained in the double-digits in the final months of the year, NAHBNow reports. Multifamily growth in the same markets has also been surging since the second quarter of 2021 as higher density markets take on an influx of housing demand. Despite rising demand, supply constraints are slowing new construction projects, and a lack of resale inventory is also aggravating a housing affordability crisis.

As some of that demand returns, a rebound for apartment building has occurred.”
