Parts of the Northeast and Midwest which have been heavily populated for longer tend to have older housing stock, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. New York leads the nation in residential home age with a median age of 63 years, followed by nearby Rhode Island and Massachusetts at 59 years. At the other end of the spectrum, states in the Mountain West and Southeast, which have been growing quickly in recent years, have younger housing stock overall. Nevada (26 years) leads all states with the newest housing, with states like Arizona, Utah, South Carolina, and Georgia not far behind.
Fast-growing Sun Belt cities offer the most recently-built housing at the metro level, and cities in two states stand out: North Carolina and Texas. North Carolina’s two largest metros, Raleigh and Charlotte, are each in the top three cities with the most new homes, while the Lone Star State is home to four of the top 15.
The data used in this analysis is from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (2020). To determine the locations with the most recently-built homes, researchers at Inspection Support Network calculated the median residential home age as of 2020, the most recent data available. Locations with lower home ages were ranked higher. In the event of a tie, the location with the greater share of housing units built in 2014 or later was ranked higher.
