Latest Home Sales Data Adds to Case For a Bounce
For those in the housing and mortgage market, there's certainly been a shift in the tone over the past few weeks. I can't speak for everyone in that market, but in daily conversations with mortgage originators, the topic of an uptick in home sales is coming up for the first time in quite a while.
To be clear, I don't think anyone thinks that we're experiencing some massive reversal of fortune. We're not quickly going back to near-all-time high sales pace seen at times during 2020 and 2021. Rather, the hope is that we're finally seeing an end to a fairly depressing slide that took sales levels to near-all-time lows.
The just-released Pending Home Sales data from the National Association of Realtors is the latest in a small collection of data that quantifies the potential shift.
