New home construction is 42% greater in this area than a year ago.

That's the first-quarter report from the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids, where Emily Lubbers says it continues the three year trend that we have reported before.

She told WOOD TV, though, that this year is the "biggest increase" in the recovery from the Recession.

As WOOD Radio has reported several times, new home sales might even be higher, but the industry lost a lot of skilled-trades people during the Recession and does not have enough skilled labor to build a lot of new houses
