US: Home sales remain higher than last year, prices fall modestly

Posted on 14 October 2011

The September 2011 RE/MAX National Housing Report, a survey of housing data from 53 metropolitan areas, shows that the number of home sales were 7.6% higher than September 2010. This follows a trend from August and July, when sales were up 18.0% and 13.1% respectively. With higher sales, the inventory of homes on the market fell for the 15th consecutive month by 20.2% from September 2010. Despite brisk sales at the end of summer, home prices continued a slight downward trend, falling 3.3% from last year.
“It’s a good omen that home sales remained at a level higher than last year, and if this pace continues, we would hope to see prices start to rise too,” said Margaret Kelly, CEO of RE/MAX, LLC. “The market is trying hard to recover, and favorable policies from Washington would reduce the possibility of a further decline.” (Press Release)
