The National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that the Pending Home Sales Index increased .5% in July from an upwardly revised June report and is up 7.4% from July, 2014.  The index is a forward-looking indicator based on signed contracts reported by NAR.

Most of the July strength was in the Northeast which increased 4.0% in July. The South was up slightly while the Midwest remained unchanged and the West decreased 1.4% in July. Year-over-year, the PHSI was up 12.1% in the Northeast, 7.5% in the West, 6.5% in the South and 5.7% in the Midwest.

The positive pending sales report follows a strong 5.4% increase in July new home sales reported two days ago, and the 2.0% increase in July existing sales reported last week.
