Negligible Decline in Housing Starts for Lethbridge

 
 

LETHBRIDGE:    In spite of an increase in housing starts in Lethbridge during December, year-end numbers are down slightly (just 12 homes or a drop of 1.8%) from 2012.

 

There were 66 new home starts in the city last month, compared to 43 during December of 2012. However, the total combined single and multiple family housing starts for 2013 tallied 648, which is down from 660 in 2012.

 

According to the local Canadian Home Builders' Association, the numbers show housing starts remain stable in the city. 

 

Among the seven major population centres across the province, only Red Deer, Edmonton and Wood Buffalo reported increases in housing starts last year. Calgary, Grande Prairie, and Medicine Hat all joined Lethbridge in posting negligible declines.

 

Calgary had 257 fewer new home starts (12,584 compared to 12,841in 2012).  Medicine Hat starts were down by 20 (264 in 2012 compared to 284 in 2013) and Grande Prairie saw a decline of 15 new home starts (596 in 2012  compared to 611 in 2013)
