With all that knowledge, hi...

A Few Comments on September Existing Home Sales
about 8 hours ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

Earlier: NAR: Existing-Home Sales Declined to 5.15 million in SeptemberA few key points:1) The key for the housing - and the overall economy - is new home sales, single family housing starts and overall residential investment. Overall this is a reasonable level for existing home sales, and the recent weakness is no surprise given the increase in mortgage rates.2) Inventory is still low, but was up 1.1% year-over-year (YoY) in September. This was the second consecutive year-over-year increase in inventory, and the first YoY increases since May 2015. 3) As usual, housing economist Tom Lawler's forecast was closer to the NAR report than the consensus.
