July New Home Sales Fall 13.4%

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-08_c95733ebab.jpgiStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) -- New home sales plunged 13.4 percent in July to an annualized pace of 394,000 units -- the biggest decline in sales since May of 2010. “The drop was consistent across all regions of the country so it's pretty pervasive and I think it was basically the result of the rise in interest rates,” said David Crowe, chief economist at the National Associate of Home Builders.

“Buyers took a breather,” Crowe said. “They stepped back from the market when they saw interest rates go up.”

Economists polled by Bloomberg were looking for new home sales to fall 2 percent to an annualized pace of 487,000 units. Despite the dramatic dip last month, Crowe believes the downturn is temporary because housing prices are going up and jobs are returning.
