Study says Port City is bucking national trend

Out of all midsize metro areas in the United States, Mobile ranks third in investing in single-family homes. That is according to a newly released study by Porch.com

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans are moving out of densely populated cities in search of more spaced-out living arrangements. While the share of single-family home constructions has been declining in favor of multi-unit properties for decades in many cities across the country, some cities have prioritized investment into single-family homes more than others.

In the Mobile metropolitan area, 99.6% of new housing units in 2019 were single-family, far above the national average of 62.2%.
