The Commerce Department said Tuesday that builders began work on a seasonally adjusted 629,000 homes last month, a 14.6% increase from May.

Still, that’s roughly half the 1.2 million homes per year that economists say must be built to sustain a healthy housing market.

Much of the increase in June came from a surge in apartment construction, a volatile part of the industry. That sector jumped more than 30% last month.

Renting has become a preferred option for many Americans who lost their jobs during the recession and were forced to leave their rapidly depreciating homes. Since 1992, apartments have typically made up just 20 percent of home construction. Now, they make up closer to 30% of the market.

Single-family home construction rose 9.4%. It was the biggest increase since June 2009, when the recession officially ended.

Building permits, a gauge of future construction, increased 2.5% .

Home construction rose in every part of the country. In the West, it increased 5.4%.
