    New home sales are the lowest since they have been keeping records and the AP adds that unemployment is up but "the trend is encouraging". If anybody ever doubted the liberal media's slavish promotion of liberal administrations all you have to do is look at the happy face the AP tries to put on bad news for Barry.

    Home sales hit 11-month high | Reuters




    (Reuters) - Home sales hit an 11-month high in December and the number of properties on the market was the fewest in nearly seven years, pointing to a nascent recovery in the housing sector.

    The National Association of Realtors said on Friday existing home sales increased 5 percent to an annual rate of 4.61 million units, with all four of the nation's regions recording gains.

    Sales of both multifamily and single-family homes rose.

    Trying to derail another thread I see.
    They know the difference. It is you that keeps bring up existing homes.
    This thread and the other is about new homes. New home sales are more important because they have to be built and that means more people are working.
    You don't want to deal with the topic because it puts Obama in a bad light.

    Maybe it's because people are buying "good deals" on foreclosures, REO'S and short sales. Much of the aforementioned is because of the reckless lending and borrowing that occurred under the previous Administration and because of a bad economy.
