The central Indiana home-construction industry finished 2013 with a strong December, helping it post its best year since 2007. 

Homebuilders filed 333 single-family building permits in the nine-county metro area in December, a 21% increase over the same month of 2012, the Builder's Association of Greater Indianapolis reported.

December's results pushed the total to 4,959 permits for all of 2013, a 19% increase over 2012.  It was the highest annual total for central Indiana since 2007, when 7,326 permits were filed.

December's increase ended a two month decline in permit filings.  Numbers were down slightly in October and November following a streak of 15 straight months of year-over-year increases.

Hamilton county remained the area's busiest for home starts in 2013, with 1,899 during the year, a 12% rise over 2012.  Permits were up 16% in Marion county in 2013, to 731.

Annual filings were up 15% in Hendricks county, 26% in Johnson county, 37% in Boone county, and 35% in Hancock county.
