December 31st, 2015

The drop is considered to be more seasonal than substantive.

As MHProNews reported Dec. 22, 2015, sales of existing homes dropped precipitously in Nov. 2015, falling 10.5 percent, partially attributed to the new Know Before You Owe regulations that are causing some closings to be delayed 30-60 days.

Regardless, the falling of the unemployment rate and improving economic conditions signals that the housing recovery continues. ##
