Houses Sold

Latest reading 356,000 versus 358,000 the previous month. The high 1,305,000 (October, 2004), the low 331,00 (January, 2009).

We should be coming into the seasonally strong period and this should give us a better idea about the prospects for new home sales. The average for April, May, June 2008 was around 860,000 units.
