Existing-home sales receded in September following two consecutive months of increases, according to the National Association of Realtors®.
Each of the four major regions witnessed sales drop off last month, with the Midwest absorbing the brunt of those declines.
Total completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, fell 2.2% from August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.38 million in September. Despite the decline, overall sales are up 3.9% from a year ago (5.18 million in September 2018).
