Pending Home Sales Hit 9-Year Highs
Monday, June 29, 2015
Pending home sales hit their highest level in over nine years in May,
indicating that the strong existing and new home sales announced last week are
likely to be repeated again for June and maybe even July activity. The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) said
that its Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) rose 0.9 percent from April's level of
11.6 to 112.6 in May. The report came in
ahead of one survey's expectations of a 0.6 percent increase, but behind the Reuters poll of 1.2 percent.
