The top three permitting cities in July were in Johnson County: 48 permits were issued in Olathe, Kan.; 38 in Shawnee, Kan.; and 34 in Overland Park, Kan. Blue Springs, Mo., and Spring Hill, Kan., rounded out the top five with 30 and 29 permits, respectively.

“The uptick in residential building permits issued in July is a positive sign that builder confidence is steady,” said KCHBA Executive Vice President Will Ruder. “The dip interest rates combined with the increase in builder permits indicate the housing market in Kansas City is on firm ground.”

In addition, growing household formations indicate solid demand for single-family homes and rental apartment units.
