  • 6. The good news just keeps on coming WASHINGTON (AP) -- New homes sold at the second-slowest pace on record in August, signaling that the housing market will remain a drag on the economy. Last month's new home sales were unchanged from a month earlier at a seasonally adjusted annual sales pace of 288,000, the Commerce Department said Friday. Sales were down by 29 percent from the same month a year earlier. – yahoo.com
  • 7. The OTTEAU Report – Market Commentary by Jeffrey Otteau Recent Housing Slump Extends to 4 Straight Months Purchase contracts to buy a home in New Jersey fell by 25% in August compared to one year ago as the housing market continues to weaken in the aftermath of expired federal homebuyer tax credits. The August decline continues a string of 4 consecutive months of slumping home sales since the tax credits expired on April 30th. The slowdown in sales pace is also causing unsold-inventory to reverse direction and begin rising again. Looking ahead, the combination of fewer sales, rising inventory and the approaching fall and winter months will bring renewed downward pressure on home prices. www.otteau.coim
  • 8. Washington, September 23, 2010 Existing-home sales rose in August following a big correction in July, according to the National Association of Realtors®. Existing-home sales 1 , which are completed transactions that include single-family, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, increased 7.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.13 million in August from an upwardly revised 3.84 million in July, but remain 19.0 percent below the 5.10 million-unit pace in August 2009. www.otteau.coim

    • Buffett Says U.S. Housing Will Recover by 2011 on Lower Supply
    • March 1 (Bloomberg) -- Billionaire Warren Buffett said the U.S. residential real estate slump will end by about 2011, predicting that’s how long it will take demand for homes to catch up with the supply.
    • “ Within a year or so, residential housing problems should largely be behind us,” Buffett wrote Feb. 27 in his annual letter to shareholders of his Berkshire Hathaway Inc. ”
