GEORGETOWN - Housing starts in Georgetown grew by nearly 30 percent in 2012 compared with 2011, according to city building permit data. That trend is expected to continue throughout 2013 as new developments and older subdivisions continue to build new homes.

Demand for new housing is part of the reason developers have begun breaking ground on new homes.

Georgetown’s population was growing by about 2,000 people per year. According to the state demographer, Williamson County is expected to reach an estimated population of 1.4 million by 2040.

Along with the expected population growth, interest in new homes has grown as builders begin offering more energy-efficient housing and new designs.
