Sales For New Construction Homes Up 18%

Posted by John Sabia on Friday, July 31st, 2015 at 10:09am.

The US Census Bureau and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced estimate for sales of new construction single-family houses dropped almost 7% in June compared to the previous month. However, even with the drop, home sales overall, are still 18.1 percent higher than last years estimate.

This, in addition to current figures confirming existing home sales have been rising and building permits have reached 8-year highs, leading economists aren't concerned with the sluggish sales in June (below expectations) and don't foresee warning signs of trouble in the housing market. In contrast, most analysts predict further continued improvement in real estate.

The report also revealed that the total of new homes available for sale was up 3.4 percent and achieved its top level since 2010. This is favorable news for home-buyers, because a larger supply of inventory of newly built homes typically results in more reasonable home prices and overall, homes become more affordable.

Also included in the report - in June, the median price for new homes sold was $281,800 as compared to the average price of $328,700.  Both figures were lower than the previous month.

Regionally, the South, Midwest and West saw a drop in sales.  Sales for the Northeast, however, showed a significant increase of 28%.
