Newport Beach home builder Capital Pacific Holdings Inc. said Monday that increased closings, net new orders and backlog helped it earn $3.5 million, or 24 cents a share, in its fiscal fourth quarter, ended Feb. 29. The earnings mark an 84% increase from the $1.9 million, or 13 cents a share, earned in the previous year's final three months.

With the pace of new apartment construction being dwarfed by the number of potential renters, Orange County rental prices are expected to climb by more than 7% this year, according to a recent report by a Palo Alto company. Only 2,000 units will be built in the county this year, mostly in Irvine, according to the report by rental market research firm Marcus & Millichap. Those new units will do little to alleviate the housing crunch, as vacancies will remain at record lows of less than 3%.
