Strong Homebuilding Continues: Booming Growth in the Housing Industry

Even though home loan interest rates have been rising lately, Coastal Community Builders continues homebuilding and is working on new community projects in San Luis Obispo (San Luis Ranch), Orcutt (Meadow View Townhomes at Rice Ranch, and Vintage Ranch), as well as future projects in Santa Maria and Monterey County. Read all about it in the Pacific Business Times: Rising interest rates, uncertain economy haven’t slowed homebuilding in the region yet, by Brooke Holland.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“Despite rising interest rates and a potentially slowing U.S. economy, homebuilders and residential developers seem eager to build in the tri-county region.

The costs of materials and labor to build new homes have increased, and rising interest rates means potential homebuyers have to pay more mortgage interest, leaving less money for the principal. Developers are also hurt by rising interest rates, if they have to borrow to buy property or finance construction.

Still, planning officials and other observers in multiple cities say they haven’t seen a slowdown in residential building permit data so far, though it’s possible one may be on the way.

Gina Perrault, the marketing director at Coastal Community Builders, said rising interest rates and the economy’s uncertain future are forcing developers to be more efficient in their planning. Coastal Community Builders has built more than 3,000 homes in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties since it was founded in 1988.

“The rising interest rates definitely affects our strategic planning, yet we still have to work to meet the housing shortage in California, so it adds an extra layer of complexity as we evaluate future projects.”
