Connecticut Housing Permits Issued Reach 14-Year High

The resurgence of Connecticut’s housing market continues with news of soaring numbers of housing starts in the state in September. The Department of Economic and Community Development says the 649 permits issued in September in 104 towns around the state was an 84 percent increase over the same month last year, and the highest of any September going back to 2006. An influx of buyers from New York and other parts of the country has put pressure recently on existing housing inventory, driving up demand for new construction.
