First, the bad news – residential construction in Houston fell 14 percent from August 2012 to August 2013.
Now, the good news – at the same time, residential building was still an extremely hefty $658 million, and year-to-date, the metro area’s $5.629 billion year-to-date tally represents a strong 18 percent increase, according to the latest numbers from McGraw Hill Construction.
