Existing-Home Sales and Prices Move Forward in January, Price Growth Accelerates

Existing-home sales moved forward in January to the highest annual rate in six months, and subpar supply levels propelled price growth to the fastest increase since last April, according to the National Association of Realtors®.

“The spring buying season is right around the corner and current supply levels aren’t even close to what’s needed to accommodate the subsequent growth in housing demand,” says Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist.
