Monday, November 30, 2015

There was a slight uptick in contract signings for home purchases in October after two straight months of declines.  The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) said today that its Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) inched up by 0.2 percent to 107.7 in October.  The September index was revised up from 106.8 to 107.5 but still represented a loss compared to August.  The index is now 3.9 percent higher than in October 2014 and has increased on a year-over-year basis for 14 consecutive months.
