Homebuilders Association Expects Housing Boom

Posted: Updated:

Last week we told you that homebuilders in the Bismarck-Mandan area had a record breaking 2013, and a new nationwide projection has Bismarck topping another list.

According to remodeling.net, Bismarck predicted to lead the country in the Residential Remodeling Index in 2014. The remodeling activity it measures includes home improvement and replacement projects costing more than $500.

The Bismarck-Mandan Homebuilders Association tells us that it is something to be expected after the recent housing boom.

"One thing that's really attractive about the Bismarck-Mandan-Lincoln communities is the fact that we really don't have any neighborhoods that are really diminishing. I guess capacity to retain and attract residents and I think that's a good thing. All this remodeling indicates that people are willing to invest in their neighborhoods," says Dot Frank, Bismarck-Mandan Homebuilders Association.

Frank says that the plumbing and electrical permits have increased since last year, which is a good indicator of remodeling.
