New-home sales slip, missing expectations

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Real Estate RS294217 / RS295398

MSNBC reported: 

 New-home sales fell slightly last month, in another sign that the housing market's recovery is likely to be gradual and prolonged.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday that sales dropped 0.6 percent in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 342,000, from a downwardly revised April rate of 344,000. Sales were down nearly 33 percent from May last year.

Aside from the fact that they, Commerce, etc., are simply reporting facts, this information is totally useless and not indicative of the real market in which we all live and work.

We are in a normal market and it will stay like it is right now for years to come. . .we better get used to it and adjust to the fact that 2004-2005 will never be no more. ..
