Atlanta’s new construction market slipped in January, as spending dropped double digits from a year prior, according to research from Dodge Data & Analytics.
But the dip isn’t so bad.
Yes, residential construction spending from Jan. 2016 to Jan. 2017 fell 15 percent, or about $100 million. However, in Dec. 2016, spending was up 51 percent from Dec. 2015, and for the whole of 2016, it was up by 23 percent. So January’s slip was likely more a quick readjustment than it was anything else.
