As one would expect in a growing community, 6.1% population growth reported between the 2011 and 2016 census, Brandon has recorded a steady increase in the number and dollar volume of building permits across all sectors of the economy. Residential construction continues to be strong, with over 3,450 new units constructed in the last decade. Of these newly constructed units, approximately half were multiple family units. From 2010 to 2016 Brandon averaged 354 new dwelling units per year. Despite strong residential growth, Brandon continues to exhibit signs of a community in which the housing demand continues to exceed supply. Brandon’s rental vacancy rate continues to be extremely low, currently hovering around 3 percent. In the past decade Brandon’s average housing price has more than doubled.
