NAR Expects Home Sales to Surge
By: Brian O'Connell
If what they say is true about how the real estate market lags behind other
indicators of economic health, then maybe we can finally believe that the U.S.
is reliably on a path of economic recovery.
The National Association of Realtors’ “pending” home sales measure for October, released this week,
shows that the U.S. housing market has already started on a big rebound.
October’s numbers show a “positive trend”, as the index climbed by 10.4% to 89.3% from a month earlier, which is
about 20% lower than October 2009, though the NAR says that last year’s
numbers were largely a product of the homebuyer’s tax credit. It’s what the
future holds that economists and homebuyers should be looking at, though.
The NAR defines its Pending Home Sales Index as “a leading indicator for
the housing sector, based on pending sales of existing homes.” The
organization notes that “a sale is listed as pending when the contract has
been signed but the transaction has not closed, though the sale usually is
finalized within one or two months of signing.”

trend in declines downward. Fourteen percent of sales were FSBOs
in 2003 and 2004, compared to just nine percent in 2010. In this
tough market, a greater share of sellers are turning to agents to help
them sell their homes.
FSBOs are more popular in rural areas and center cities.
Typically FSBO sellers have lower median incomes and are more often singles.
FSBOs are also more common for mobile home sales.
Many sellers who opt for FSBOs are selling their property to
someone they know like a friend, relative, or neighbor. This helps keep FSBOs
on the market for less time and more often sellers receive 100 percent of the
FSBOs are less likely to use incentives. Yard signs and Internet
listings are the most popular method of marketing FSBOs. FSBO sellers most
often struggle with pricing and preparing homes for sale. Of those who
used FSBOs to sell to someone they knew, a greater share would use a
real estate agent when selling their current home".
