Home Sales Were Up In May

Home Sales Up In May

In May of this year, sales of previously owned homes increased 5.1 percent and are presently 9.2 percent higher than they were for the same period last year, according to new estimates released by the National Association of Realtors®. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for NAR, says home sales are now at their highest pace since November 2009. “Solid sales gains were seen throughout the country in May as more homeowners listed their homes for sale and therefore provided greater choices for buyers,” Yun said.

As the numbers indicate, the total number of homes available for sale across the country increased 3.2 percent in May, which should help moderate price increases and provide better purchase opportunities for buyers in the marketplace.

When looking deeper at the purchasers, first time home-buyers represented an ever larger share in May, accounting for 32 percent of home sales. Last year, this group was only 27 percent of sales. Yun says the return of first-time buyers is an encouraging sign and the result of strong job gains, less expensive mortgage insurance, and low down payment programs.

Regionally, the Northeast led the nation with an 11.3 percent improvement over the prior month, though the Midwest, South, and West regions all saw gains in May. More about this here...
