Existing Home Sales Ease

Also according to the National Assocation of Realtors:

Existing-home sales eased in September, as did the number of homes available for sale – indicating the housing market is stabilizing. Total existing-home sales dipped 1.9 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.18 million units in September. This pace was 14.2 percent down from a year earlier. David Lereah, NAR’s chief economist, said: “Considering that existing-home sales are based on closed transactions, this is a lagging indicator and the worst is behind us as far as a market correction – this is likely the trough for sales.”
