New Home Sales ?

The week ended with what some saw as an obstacle to reaching our goal of a full housing recovery. New Home Sales were reported down 13.4% in July to a 394,000 unit annual rate, well below consensus expectations. A disappointing report to be sure, but not the end of the recovery. We may have had one bad month, but we’re still on an upward trend, with new home sales up 6.8% and the median new home price up 8.3% versus a year ago. Also, the recent growth of existing home inventories is drawing buyers away from new homes.
