Builders Selling Well

New home sales surged forward in January and inventories dipped to their lowest in 8 years as housing demand continues to return. On an annual seasonally-adjusted basis, new homes sold at a 437,000 pace in January, up 15.6% from December and 28.9% from a year ago. The improvement was broad based in all four regions. The surge in sales and already low inventories reduced the month’s supply to 4.1 months, the lowest since March 2005.
