Harris County reclaimed the top spot for new home installations for October. The Permian Basin counties are down month-over-month which could be an indication of the market cooling as oil prices declined over the course of that month. A decline which continued on through the end of the year.
The Midland County decline is exaggerated by the large number of homes that had been installed there the previous month.
Liberty County was up 13% and bumped Bexar County out of the top five which saw a -16.7% decline in new home installs.
