Key Quotes

“Pending home sales were weak in May and April. In addition, structural factors such as rising mortgage rates and shortage of units for sales likely prevailed. Thus, we expect only a modest improvement in existing single-family home sales in June. In addition, volatile existing condo and co-op sales rose 1.6% m-o-m in May. This increase may have reverted in June, lowering total sales.”
