New Home Sales Miss As Mortgage Rate Collapse Fails To Bring Buyers Back

Despite yesterday’s disappointing existing home sales print, new home sales were expected to spike (after dropping for two straight months), and did – thanks to a large downward revision in May.

New Home Sales were 646k SAAR in June – missing expectations of 658k. However this 7.0% MoM jump was bigger than expected thanks to the 8.2% revised plunge in May.

May new-home sales were revised down to 604,000 from 626,000; March and April purchases were also revised lower.

Year-over-year, new home sales rebounded…

Purchases of new homes jumped in the West by the most since August 2010, while sales also rose in the South. Sales in the Midwest slumped to 56,000 last month, the slowest pace since September 2015.

The supply of homes at the current sales rate declined to 6.3 months from 6.7 months in May.

The median sales price was little changed from a year earlier at $310,400.

Despite a collapse in mortgage rates, new home sales refuse to accelerate…

Time for a rate-cut then… because that has helped housing, right? Oh wait…
