Residential construction markets were a bit inconsistent in May, though the news was not all bad.
Residential construction in Houston declined a bit in May, flatlining percent year-over-year and maintaining a $806 million total, according to the latest numbers from McGraw Hill Construction.
Though a disappointing result, Houston’s numbers were consistent with other metro areas, which also saw declining residential spending. Also, non-residential spending in Houston increased quite substantially, rising more than five-fold to exceed $663 million, and on year-to-date measures, residential construction is still up 10 percent.
