New Home Sales: April 2013

Yesterday, the U.S. Census Department released its monthly New Residential Home Sales Report for April showing a improvement with sales climbing 2.25% from March and rising 28.98% above the level seen in April 2012 but still remaining at an historically low level of 454K SAAR units.

It's important to recognize that the inventory of new homes appears to be mounting as unsold units totaled 156K, still though near the lowest level seen in in at least 47 years while the median number of months for sale increased to 4.0.

The monthly supply went flat at 4.1 months while the median selling price increased 14.89% and the average selling price increased 14.90% from the year ago level.
