The NAR has reported that pending home sales rose in July to the highest level in over two years. Home sales are also well-above the rate they were a year ago.
NAR’s chief economist, Lawrence Yun, said, “While the month-to-month movement has been uneven, more importantly we now have 15 consecutive months of year-over-year gains in contract activity.”
Existing-home sales are projected to rise 8 to 9 percent in 2012, followed by another 7 to 8 percent gain in 2013. According to the NAR, home prices are expected to increase 10 percent cumulatively over the next two years.
