Good News for the Housing Market: Pending Home Sales Are Up

Another sure sign the housing market is in full recovery mode: Pending home sales rose 3.1% last month from January, according to the National Association of Realtors®. That’s a solid 12% higher than February 2014.

Strong sales in the Midwest contributed greatly to the gains by offsetting slight dips in the Northeast and South. The Pending Home Sales Index now sits at 106.9, the highest level since June 2013. Pending home sales are measured by contract signings. A contract is considered pending once all contingencies are met. At that point, sales are just waiting to close, making it a valid indicator of future home sale activity.

February’s rise from January gave a clear sign that cold weather had little impact on motivated buyers across the country. The Midwest was the standout, however: Pending home sales leaped 11.6% to an index of 110.4—a nearly 14% increase over February 2014.
