June saw similarly explosive growth with an 86 percent increase in residential construction contracts year-over-year. This is following a significant drop in construction spending during May, when residential contracts were down by roughly $52 million from the year before — a 19 percent decrease.

So far this year, an incredible $4 billion has been spent on residential contracts in the tri-county region including Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward Counties.
