Report: New home construction falls in all Wisconsin metro areas

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - New home construction continues to lag in Wisconsin's largest metro areas.

MTD Marketing Services said the numbers of building permits for new one and two-family homes fell by just over 10 percent last month.

369 permits were issued in the Milwaukee, Madison, Fox Valley, Racine-Kenosha, and Green Bay-Door County regions. That's 42 fewer home permits than were issued in July of 2013.

There were declines in all five regions.

For the first 7 months of the year, MTD said building permits for new homes dropped by almost 3 percent, to around 2,200.
