, ,

The National Association of Realtors® has released the National sales data for January.  January’s sales pace is 3.8 percent higher than a year ago and becomes the strongest growth in a decade.  NAR chief economist, Lawrence Yun, still believes that the increase is due to buyer fear of interest rates going up.  Please clink on the link to see the press conference held by Yun.
