NHBC ... Significant 3rd Quarter

NHBC have today announced a significant 3rd quarter increase in the volume of new homes built.

With volumes increasing overall from 28,151 (Q3 2012) to 33,573 this year, we are seeing an increase year on year for the 3rd quarter on the trot, a really positive sign for the industry as a whole.  This increase amounts to 19%, and following on from a 22% increase in Q1 and a massive 38% increase in Q2 gives us a year to date increase of 26%.

In the final quarter of last year approaching 25,000 houses were registered with NHBC, and if a similar number are registered this year then we are easily on target for the highest volume of houses since 2007, when slightly over 200,000 were built.

There is still a lot of work to be done, but this has to be taken as a positive sign that we are on the road to recovery.
