New Home Sales Soar in Snow-bound Northeast

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

New home sales rose on a seasonally adjusted annual basis in February, partially because of a near tripling of sales in the Northeast.  Nationally sales of newly constructed single-family homes were up 7.8 percent from January to an annual rate of 539,000 units.  January sales were revised upward from 481,000 units to 500,000.  February sales were 24.8 percent higher than a year earlier when they were estimated at 432,000.

On a non-adjusted basis there were an estimated 44,000 new homes sold during the month compared to 37,000 in January and 35,000 in February 2014.  The homes sold were almost evenly divided across completed homes, homes under construction, and those for which construction had not yet begun.

"Sara was helpful, encouraging and thorough. I had unexpectedly been notified the rental house I was in would be sold. I had no idea if I could even qualify for a mortgage. Sara was amazing. She had such an great attitude. When I wasn't hopeful, she always was. She worked so hard to find the best fit for me from a financing standpoint. She was patient with all my questions and thoroughly explained everything. There were no surprises. So very grateful to have found and worked with Sara Fuller on this loan. She is outstanding!"
