Pending Sales Were Up In July

Posted by John Sabia on Wednesday, September 9th, 2015 at 2:51pm.

The National Association of Realtors® Pending Home Sales Index is a measurement used to monitor the number of contracts that were signed or executed during a given month. Because it looks at executed contracts and not actual closings, this index is a reliable indicator of forthcoming sales.

In July of this year, the index increased slightly by 0.5 percent as compared to June. The index has now climbed higher than previous year levels for eleven months in a row and is currently 7.4 percent higher than in 2014. NARs chief economist, Lawrence Yun said the real estate housing market started the second half of the year on a positive note.

Mr. Yun added “Led by a solid gain in the Northeast, contract activity in most of the country held steady last month, which bodes well for existing-sales to maintain their recent elevated pace to close out the summer.” He continued, “While demand and sales continue to be stronger than earlier this year, Realtors have reported since the spring that available listings [for homes for sale and condos for sale] in affordable price ranges remain elusive for some home buyers trying to reach the market and are likely holding back home sales and condo sales from being more robust.”

Nationwide, pending sales were up by 4 percent in the Northeast, 0.6 percent in the Southern market, and unchanged in the Midwest.  The West, however, declined slightly from the previous month.
