CIRB releases new “Snapshot of Homebuilding Activity” report

We created the “Snapshot” report to show exactly what’s going on in California’s 5 major regions with vibrant charts and graphs, talking points, and historical housing unit trends.


CIRB has a new permit report (and it’s already one of our top-sellers!).

Released in January 2019, the first-ever Snapshot of California Homebuilding Activity report (reflecting monthly and annual permit data from December 2018) has been positively received among industry professionals seeking visual representation of summarized, regional permit activity without the spreadsheets.

CIRB has been known as the building industry’s data source for detailed permit activity by category, month, and even by all 539 incorporated California cities, but detail isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.

That’s why we created the “Snapshot” report; to show exactly what’s going on in California’s 5 major regions with vibrant charts and graphs, talking points, and historical housing unit trends.

The “Snapshot” provides the highlights of new single- and multifamily construction, with current and year-to-date trends and statewide context, painting an accurate (and colorful) depiction of housing permit activity throughout California.

Want to check it out? View a sample or purchase a copy of the most recent Snapshot of California Homebuilding Activity report on our online store for only $49.

Perhaps detailed spreadsheets with residential and commercial building permit data ARE your cup of tea. If so, make sure to get a copy of our California Construction Review (CCR) for only $75, or subscribe today to get the discounted rate of $65 per report for 12 months’ worth of data.
