REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS

REAL ESTATE MARKET ANALYSIS Many economists are looking for sales of both new and existing homes to fall by around 10% this year as rising mortgage rates crimp demand. The lowest mortgage rates in four decades helped to propel sales to five straight annual records from 2001 through 2005. A recent report from the Commerce Department indicated sales of new single family homes increased 4.6% in may. The largest increase, 6%, was in the south. Many economists also believe that the huge backlog of unsold homes will put more downward pressure on prices in coming months. The Commerce Department report for May 2006 shows the median sales price was up 3.1% to $235,000 as compared to May 2005.
