Patios On New Homes Are The New Norm

More than half of newly constructed homes now include patios, signaling a demand for outdoor space, reports Paul Emrath for the NAHB's Eye on Housingblog.
In addition to patios, 23.8% of homes started in 2017 had decks, while 64.7% had porches.
From the start of the downturn in 2007 through 2011, the share of new homes with patios was consistently under 50 percent—as low as 44.8 percent in the trough of 2009. In 2012, the share jumped to 52.4 percent and has been consistently climbing ever sense, finally breaking above 58 percent in 2017.
