Growth in US home construction slowed in July after a strong surge the previous month, Commerce Department data released Tuesday showed.

Housing starts rose 0.2 percent to an annual rate of 1.206 million, the highest pace since October 2007, before the Great Recession, and in line with analyst expectations.

The June surge was revised upward to a 12.3 percent increase month over month.

Compared with a year ago, July housing starts were up 10.1 percent, as the housing market recovers from the severe 2008-2009 recession.

The July increase was entirely due to starts on single-family homes, the largest part of the market, which jumped 12.8 percent.

Construction of multi-family units, which tends to be volatile, dropped 17 percent.

Building permits, an indicator of future activity, tumbled 16.3 percent in July to an annual rate of 1.119 million, below the consensus estimate of 1.257 million.

Permits were up 7.5 percent from July 2014.
