Building permits stayed on a steady pace in the month of March 2012 in the city of Central with a total of 16 new residential permits being issued.  The total valuation of these permits was $3,567,928.00.  
Within these permits, one was issued in Village at Magnolia Square with a building valuation of $376,676; one in Morgan Springs with a valuation of $177,762; three in Village Lakes with an average valuation of $259,791; four in Burlington Lakes valued at an average of $165,414; one in Woodstock valued at $245,552; one in Wisteria Lakes valued at $216,838; and five on private parcels of land with an average valuation of $222,013.   A total of 45 new residential home permits have been issued so far this year.
Building valuation is the price based upon the square footage of the home used for permitting purposes.  The actual selling price of the home is usually higher than the valuation and depends upon amenities installed by the builder.
