ROUND ROCK, PFLUGERVILLE, HUTTO - In 2014, 279 new home builds were permitted within Round Rock’s city limits. That is a slight increase from previous years — 229 in 2013 and 257 in 2012.

All those numbers are a far cry from Round Rock’s peak years of 2000-06, when single-family home permits ranged from 1,147 to 1,717 annually.

However, according to city documents, the pace of construction of single-family homes is rising, with an estimated 392 homes to be built in 2015 and 686 homes in 2016.

Pflugerville, on the other hand, reported record-breaking numbers in 2014, with 721 homes built. Its previous peak was in 2013, with 544 homes built. Pflugerville also, unlike Round Rock, includes the number of homes built in its extra territorial jurisdiction.

Hutto reported 429 homes built in 2014 and steady increases from 2013, with 367 homes; 2012, with 226; and 2011, with 189 homes. The city’s peak year on record was 2006 with 781 homes built.

“There is a massive amount of building going on all over,” said Jack Stapleton, board president of the Williamson County Association of Realtors. “The builders are getting as many building permits as they can get their hands on to just keep up with the massive growth.”
