Will We See a Springtime Recovery?

In January, the National Association of Realtors’ Pending Home Sales Index fell 7.6 percent from December to a seasonally adjusted 90.4, which is 12.3 percent higher than January 2009’s 80.5. 

According to NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun the decrease in pending home sales is likely due to the harsh winter weather. Although, January pending sales are higher than the same time last year, they are much lower than expected. The unusually severe winter weather that affected many parts of the U.S., also had a big impact on February home sales.

Yun has also predicted a rise in existing-home sales in April, May and June. With a jump in existing-home sales and sufficient job creation, housing could become self-sustaining with stable to modestly rising home prices.
