The National Association of Realtors announced today that Pending home sales for April were up 6.7% from March. This is the third month in a row that pending sales have increased. Slowly it seems that we are creeping out of the bottom of the real estate market.
Additionally, we see that 30yr mortgage rates are beginning to increase from their prior lows. Once again we want to riterate that housing really has bottomed and while prices might still decline slightly, the risk is more to the upside than down.
