When I search for houses online in either of these areas, most of the housing
appears older. Is new construction slow in these areas? Or are there
areas of town in which new housing construction is going strong?
Thank you.

What program are u searching with?? Because my results are coming up a litttttle bit different. I live in the area, most of Cedar Rapids has developments coming in on each edge of the area. Waterloo is going to be the southern edge of town, spanning into southern Cedar falls and west side areas.

I'm not sure about Waterloo - but I would have to guess based on it's population growth alone, there aren't a TON of new homes going up.

I have stats for Cedar Rapids. It's a combined total for Cedar Rapids and Iowa City though, since they're extremely close cities with only about 10-12 miles between their growth boundries including burbs.

There were 15,528 new housing units built in this area since 2000, so you shouldn't have a problem with new housing. Cedar Rapids has many new subdivisions growing off of it on all sides.

Yuck, dont move to Waterloo. There isnt much action in Waterloo. We travel there about once a month, and it is ALWAYS the same.

Cedar Rapids, and Marion, the primary suburb have sustained some major growth in the past years, CR/Marion is definitely a better choice.

I was surprised to find answers to my question. For weeks nobody responded.
Thanks for the heads up about Waterloo, I figured it would be yucky. At least I know that growth is definitely occuring in CR. I will look into it.

Most of the new housing units for the CR/Iowa City data you quoted would be in Iowa City, I would guess. Too bad they lump them together, because they are completely different areas. I would guess that CR doesn't have a lot of new construction.

^ I don't remember where I found them, but Cedar Rapids actually had more units built than Iowa City. The Cedar Rapids area has grown by roughly 35,000 since 1990, and Iowa City by around 25,000.

Probably true, but remember that CR is a lot bigger than IC. And completely different types of populations (demographics).
