Housing construction, fast job growth linked

Places with robust employment growth are where you will find the most residential construction, according to "U.S. Housing Markets," a research publication of Lomas Mortgage USA of Dallas.

Las Vegas leads metropolitan areas in both adding jobs, up 7.7 percent, and issuing residential building permits, 24.5 per 1,000 residents, during the last four quarters.

Other locations among the publication's 12 best housing markets and their ranking among the 15 top employment markets are Naples, Fla.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Fort Myers-Cape Coral, Fla.; Phoenix-Mesa, Ariz., (4th); Atlanta (7th); West Palm Beach, Fla.; Orlando, Fla., (2nd); Tucson, Ariz., (15); Charlotte, N.C.; Austin, Texas, (5th); and Albuquerque, N.M. (3rd).
