US Pending Home Sales Fall

Contracts to buy previously owned US homes dropped in January on a shortage of inventory in the Midwest and West regions, the National Association of Realtors said on Monday.
The NAR said its pending home sales index, based on contracts signed last month, fell 2.8% to 106.4. The pending home sales index for December was revised up to 109.5. Analysts polled by Reuters had forecast a 0.9% increase in January. The index last month, however, was still 0.4% higher than in January 2016.
Buyers are easily outnumbering sellers in several metro areas, NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun said in a statement.
"Most notably in the West, it's not uncommon to see a home come off the market within a month," Yun said.
