The Commerce Department reported today U.S. builders started slightly fewer homes in October with rising construction of apartments. The seasonally adjusted annual rate for housing starts dipped a slight 0.3% to 628,000 last month, roughly half of the 1.2 million economists say indicates a healthy housing market.But building permits rose by 11% due to a 30% increase in apartment permits, its highest level in three years.

Since the recession officially ended in June 2009, it has contributed just 4%.
