New home construction in Shasta County has been very slow to get moving compared to other regions in the state and country. Over the past 10 years, there have only been a handful of new subdivisions taking shape. Typically, on average there are 100-150 new residential projects completed each year in the City of Redding.
The recent Carr Fire brought a noticeable increase to the number of permits pulled for new construction. Although these permits were pulled to replace previous existing home inventory. With these new homes being built, the increase in jobs and revenue being pumped back into our community has been positive.
The second wave of new construction taking shape will be much more noticeable in the coming years. There are multiple, new subdivisions currently under development that will be offering new homes for purchase in Anderson, Redding, and surrounding areas.
