Poll results: Housing predictions

Reader predictions for 2021 total-year housing starts lean toward 1.5 million.

HBSDealer's most recent poll question looked into the near future at the end-of-year figure for residential construction.

As background 7% growth rate in 2021 would put the year-end figure at 1,476,172. But housing starts have been on a tear so far this year — up 22% year to date. If that pace continues, the end of year figure would be 1,683,112.
