Existing Home Sales

A monthly report released by the National Association of Realtors measuring the number of closed sales of previously constructed homes. The existing home sales report is a decent demand-side indicator, whereas the housing starts report offers more insight to the supply-side of housing. Home sales are sensitive to mortgage rates, which is often reflected in the numbers a few months after a rate change.
