DescriptionThis indicator is thought to be a good measure of demand in the real-estate sector. Existing home sales is an economic indicator of both the number and prices of existing single family houses, condos and co-op sales over a one-month period. Is a lagging indicator as it tends to react after a change in mortgage rates.
