Pending home sales flatten YOY

From the WSJ:

U.S. Pending Home Sales Tumbled 2.5% in January

The number of existing homes tentatively sold across the U.S. fell in January, as swiftly rising prices and lower inventory muted buyer demand after the strongest year in nearly a decade.

An index measuring pending home sales—a gauge of purchases before they become final—fell 2.5% to a seasonally adjusted reading of 106.0 in January, the National Association of Realtors said Monday. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, which the NAR considers a “normal,” or balanced, market for the current U.S. population. In 2015, the index averaged 108.9, a rise of 8.0% over 2014 and its highest level since 2006.

The drop surprised analysts. Economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal had predicted a 0.5% increase in January’s sales. December’s reading was revised up to 108.7 from an initial reading of 106.8.

“While pending home sales have been weak lately, some other housing indicators—including the mortgage purchase application data reported through most of February—have looked strong, giving us hope that the housing market is continuing to recover,” Daniel Silver, an economist at J.P. Morgan Chase, wrote in an analyst note.

Pending home sales rose 1.4% in January from a year earlier, the 17th straight month the index has increased year over year, but that was its second-smallest annual gain over that period.

Several economists noted January’s blizzard may have dampened activity in the Northeast, but the index fell most in the Midwest and Northwest, declining by 4.9% and 4.5% respectively.

“It’s possible that the drop in the stock market beginning at the start of the year persuaded would-be home buyers to wait a while, but we have no way of knowing for sure,” said Ian Shepherdson, an economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, in a note to clients. “Alternatively, the severe blizzard in late January might have depressed activity in the northeast, but sales reportedly fell even further in the West, so it’s hard to find a consistent story.”

    Something to talk about Super Tuesday Trump machine rolls on but I will be surprised if he gets the nomination. probably won’t make the 1237 and GOP will Ram Rubio down our throats. Its not that I’m a devoted Trump fan, but he’s got my vote, I’m really just sick of the establishment and here is a guy that finally has the notoriety and the resources to shake up the GOP insiders. Hell he might even be able to change a few minor things as president but for the most part I think he’ll be neutered of power IF elected. Notice Rubio’s percentages have dropped since the good old boys fell in behind him (even Cruz is ahead of him now). and he’s still sending out the same old message, It should be a bumper sticker ” IF YOU LIKE THE STATUS QUO” “THEN VOTE FOR MARCO RUBIO” if this guys elected he’ll owe so many favors that he’ll still be kissing ass when the next election cycle rolls around. As a registered republican I would fall in behind Cruz if he wins legitimately, but Rubio nah The GOP just doesn’t see themselves as the polished but unethical, silver spooned, champions of the special interest that they have become, and the fact that Bitch McConnell has taken this thing so personally only adds greater Joy to the whole situation. Should Mitch and da boyz decide that they know whats good for us & ignore the will of the people again I for one will probably cast my vote for that felonious witch on the other side of the septic tank cause either way we’ll be in the Sh*t. Might as well add some gridlock.

    6. is there anything the establishment can do? Trump is so energetic.

  6. Comrade Nom Deplume, Newspeak Editor says:

    [3] pumps

    In my gut, I feel that there is a form of conspiracy involving Trump, but I don’t think he is a participant. I do feel that there is an effort to pump up his vote however it cannot account for his lead.

  7. Comrade Nom Deplume, Newspeak Editor says:

    Comrade Sanders took four states. That will force Cankles to have to defend her left flank.

  8. Ragnar says:

    To me the big question is whether Cruz is more willing to cooperate with Rubio than Trump. And whether Cruz voters are willing. Together they could stop Trump.
    Meanwhile, Sean Hannity is totally preparing to be the future Baghdad Bob for Trump.

  9. Funnelcloud says:

    Absolutely The GOP and Super Pacs will keep Rubio in the race regardless of how bad he loses The main goal now is that they prevent Trump from getting to 1237 delegates, If that happens they go to a brokered convention and the GOP picks who “THEY” think should be the nominee. Rubio of Course, Thats the GOP’s present course of action and the main reason I’m so against the Golden boy.

  10. D-FENS says:

    It was amazing to watch life long Republicans lose their minds on twitter last night. They really hate Trump’s guts. So many people renouncing their party status over it.

    Seems like more people who aren’t totally immersed in politics all the time are participating in primaries/caucuses. Establishment types aren’t liking it…

  11. D-FENS says:

    I had a great time trolling lifelong Republicans last night. I’m sure quite a few of them smashed their phones.

  12. GOP'sbroken(the good one) says:

    easier win


    For the record, most Democrats would much rather face Cruz than Trump

  13. D-FENS says:

    14 – I’d agree with that. Trump has broader appeal. It’s telling that he wins in states with open primaries and early voting.

  14. grim says:

    The only way Rubio or Cruz overtake Trump is if one of them drop out … Mexican Standoff. Who shoots first?

  15. grim says:

    Bernie is to Democrats as Trump is to Republicans.

    Bernie and Trump are the same candidate.

    Who does not see this?

  16. GOP'sbroken(the good one) says:


    Trump voter on Fox News says he likes that Trump doesn’t give specific policy ideas because otherwise other candidates might steal them.

  17. D-FENS says:

    Grim, my guess is if Cruz drops out, a lot of them will go over to Trump. Rubio is now the establishment guy.

    12 D-Fens
    Every candidate is going to have his or her haters, but its nonsense when they say Trump doesn’t have the majority, Or The Majority of voters hate Trump, Its just not true, He’s pulling down the highest scores Rubio isn’t getting a majority, Cruz, Kasich(?) no majority but The loathed trump is definitely more popular than the other guys, in a run off do you really believe that 100% of all the voters for Cruz will run to Rubio or will fall in as anti trump for one or the other candidates, I highly doubt it ? also 20000 dem voters in Mass changed party affiliations to back Trump. Trump is a anti-establishment protest candidate that finally carries enough clout to disrupt the GOP machine, That’s really all he is and The GOP’s only recourse is to fear monger and hope the electorate is stupid enough to buy into there message that Donald Trump is the anti-christ and going to be the end of the world, and that Rubio is our only hope. At best Trump will disrupt the Money machine of the special interest and maybe piss off a few of his billionaire competitors. Just look to the back room brain storming sessions going on right now all special interest and insiders nothing about. “WE THE PEOPLE”

  21. GOP'sbroken(the good one) says:

    My wife and I remain registered, but unaffiliated with any party. In NJ, you can declare your party the day of a primary and vote. I think I’ll leave it that way, and vote in the primary if I need to….then change back to unaffiliated later.

    They way it’s looking, the primary in NJ might actually mean something.

    Too bad we don’t have open primary voting.

  25. D-FENS says:

    Let’s just start calling it the Trump party and plate it in Brass.

  26. D-FENS says:

    At least Bernie Sanders is credible. There’s video of him chaining himself to a Black woman during a civil rights demonstration in the 60’s. Later in the video he’s wailed on by night sticks and hauled away by the cops.

    Meanwhile, Hillary has to explain why she wanted Black “superpredators” to “heel” in the 90’s.

  27. grim says:

    Just wait until Trump brings Carson over to his side, as Secretary of HHS. Maybe to head the CDC? Which is the more powerful position? Clearly Trump would care less about who the establishment wants seated in those positions, instead, I’m sure he’ll broker them himself to win.

    I should not have used the word Stupid, People are all entitled to their beliefs and views, that’s the wonderful thing about this country, to be able to have an opinion. I’m of the “OPINION” that Trump is the first candidate to come along that the establishment truly has worries about, To me and a great number of other people That’s what is appealing about Trump, In the simplest terms it puts our leaders on notice that maybe even a guy like Trump is better than going down the path that we have been going and that their cushy jobs may be in jeopardy in the next election cycle. Other people especially those who may directly be effected by a Trump presidency Absolutely will feel differently, its the self preservation don’t touch mine attitude ingrained in the American culture. Every bodies going to vote for whats in their best interest. to me none of them truly have anything to offer. I don’t even dislike Rubio, I dislike him being the insider choice Thats about it

  30. grim says:

    Why doesn’t Bernie have the black vote? NPR went on and on about this last night. Despite the overwhelming evidence that he should have it, he doesn’t.

    One of the NPR callers nailed it, I think – Bernie won’t get anything done, and Clinton will. Clinton, especially, will build on the Obama legacy, leaving a positive historical account of the Obama presidency, and Bernie will be entirely ineffectual, facing more roadblocks than Obama would.

    Over what? His Trump endorsement?

  34. Ottoman says:

    The correct answer is that the Clintons and their cronies, which is the Dem Party itself, are masters at pandering, deflection, and triangulation. Bill Clinton got lots done for blacks–his welfare reform doubled the number of black women and children living in extreme poverty, his crime efforts more than quadrupled the black prison population, his signing of Gramm Leach ripped more wealth out of black hands when the market eventually collapsed than Jim Crow, and Hill supported and helped campaign for all these things. She still won’t walk back welfare reform and she pretends Gramm had nothing to do with the collapse. Plus she just loves to bomb dark skinned people in foreign countries.

    Obama didn’t get much done for blacks either.

    “One of the NPR callers nailed it, I think – Bernie won’t get anything done, and Clinton will. Clinton, especially, will build on the Obama legacy, leaving a positive historical account of the Obama presidency, and Bernie will be entirely ineffectual, facing more roadblocks than Obama would.”

  35. Comrade Nom Deplume, Newspeak Editor says:

    [30] DFENS

    I said it before and I will say it again. Hillary will throw the left under the bus the moment her hand comes off the Bible. At least Bill pitched the ideas before he did a 180 on them. Hillary won’t even do that– she will go after a portion of the GOP wish list on day two in order to claim credit for them later.

    If I were advising the Donald, I would suggest that he starts trying to look up presidential now. One thing that he could do is make a list of suggested supreme court nominees that are both eminently qualified and moderate. That would burnish his credentials and would also box both Obama and Hillary because it would become a list of instantly toxic nominees in the short term.

  36. D-FENS says:

    Wierd. I might actually agree with Ottoman.

    Hillary Clinton will “Make America Whole again” the same way she did with Libya.

  40. Comrade Nom Deplume, Newspeak Editor says:

    Good discussion on CNBC today about how the middle class has been sliding over the past several years. One statistic from the Fed was that if you removed Texas from the equation, the middle class has actually retrenched pretty significantly during Obama.

    Even Andrew Ross Sorkin had to concede that the Republican narrative was essentially correct; that while there has been (anemic) job creation, we are essentially creating a nation of baristas.

  41. Juice Box says:

    re: # 32 – While the rest of the Cable news was busy yelling about Trump last night Aljazeera was boots on the ground interviewing Black voters in Alabama after they voted. It seems Hillary’s name recognition won the day with 77% Dems voted for her. One Woman doctor basically said “Bernie Who” and the Baptist minister they interviewed said they the church got the word out vote Hillary. It also did not help Bernie when he did not stop and eat at the fried chicken joint Yo Mama’s like Hillary to press the flesh. I don’t think Bernie has the right campaign advisers who can help him win over Black voters. The southern states will all go republican in the general election anyway but it is interesting that the people backing Bernie have missed the Black vote almost entirely.

    re # 41 – I agree unfortunately. Imagine if the Christie administration did not fight the Unions all the way to the Supreme Court? We would all now be on the hook to fully fund the pensions.

    “The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a bid by unions representing public employees including teachers and state troopers to force the state of New Jersey to pay the full share of its annual public pension contribution.

    The court declined to hear the unions’ appeal, leaving in place a July 2015 ruling by the New Jersey Supreme Court that allowed Republican Governor Chris Christie’s administration to make only partial contributions into public pension funds.”

    The Clintons have proven they will continue to deliver for the power brokers in the minority community as long as long as they keep the voting block intact and disenfranchised. Hill will continue to deliver handouts to the Sharptons, etc. at the expense of the community overall. The last thing any of the Democratic establishment wants is for the minority community to be self sufficient.

  50. walking bye says:

    My observations
    1. Trump needs to loose the fat man. Chris is not liked outside of NJ and NJ will go Clinton anyway.
    2. trump appealing to the center may help him once the convention is over. Last couple of elections, Repubs always seem to get hijacked by ultra conservatives which may have the loudest voice, but make up a small majority. Hence loosing battle ground staes.
    3. Now that Trump is legit candidate. He needs to soften polarizing comments and let the media machine do the work for him. Not sure if he can do that.

  51. Juice Box says:

    “Us”? OK, presuming you’re a R, you need to stop believeing the D house-organ media way of talking politics. EVERY R is “extreme”, “wing nut” to them. Romney got elected governor in the Kennedy state of Mass-a-two-$hits and while in office implemented an sharp expansion of government involvement with health insurance. The MSM still put the horns on him come election time. So let’s stop using the NYT yardstick to measure who is how far right of center in the GOP.

    Speaking of which I continue to LOVE the advice to the GOP from out most wiry-haired resident Twitter-addled troll of the left. I’m so confident he has only our best interests at heart. Have you been named to the “Twitter Trust, Safety & Truth About the Glorious Revolution Council” yet?

    Well I will admit I was wrong. I said that Trump would be done by Super Tuesday, yet he keeps going. Can’t wait to see how this ends. I am pulling for the brokered convention and fighting in the aisles.

  81. The Great Pumpkin says:


    “What if that is short-circuited by a fleet of self-driving cars that could conceivably operate at very high speeds in special lanes dedicated to them? That could lead to an entirely different idea of commuting. Historically, forty-five minutes is the upper limit of one-way commute time that people will put up with. Some people will put up with more—especially in poorer economic brackets—but most middle class people have forty-five minutes as their upper limit. What happens if that time can be productive? What happens if you can move much faster and farther during those forty-five minutes? We might see a very big shift in terms of what it means to live in the city versus living in the suburbs. It may be that calling Hudson, New York, “the New Brooklyn” will have an entirely other meaning soon.

    And auto companies aren’t likely to stick with the current model of ownership. You could get self-driving cars that might be based on a variation on the Uber model. Instead of owning a car, you might call one. Let’s say I come here in a self-driving Audi, it drops me off, drives away, and goes to pick up someone else. It’ll come and get me later according to the schedule I’ve given it. I might pay higher to use it at peak time, or less if I’m willing to share it with three other people. This alone could transform the relationship between the suburbs and the city.

    But I don’t see enclavization disappearing. On the contrary, even though the densification of certain suburbs with large apartment buildings and lofts is taking place, these largely replicate the dominant model of enclavization, with the poor pushed more and more to the peripheries, fragmented into smaller areas with no real voice or power. This new model of commuting that I am describing is little different. Right now, if you commute in from a place like West Orange to Manhattan on the train, you still have to go to the train station, and then you’re still passing through, and stopping in, places like East Orange and Newark, both of which have very high levels of poverty. But what if in the future people are picked up by self-driving cars in places like Vizcaya and then travel through entire regions where all they see are trees—behind which poverty has been walled off—before they get to their destinations in places like Manhattan? This is not a particularly utopian scenario.”

  82. libtard losing his shirt in the hospital. Thanks ADA. says:

    What Anon fails to realize since he is blinded by the D Machine, is that Hillary will lose to Trump. Grim is correct, as usual. Bernie and Trump are the protest voters. A ton of Bernie voters will pull the lever for change in November regardless of whether it’s Schlump or Bernie. The black vote will give Cankles the primary, but the protest vote is obviously much larger than the black vote.

  83. The Great Pumpkin says:

    “Academically, social!sm works. Without greed, jealousy, a competitive spirit, and other emotions that make up the complexities of the human spirit, it’s accepted by most experts that a system of a tyrannical form of social!st government functions.

    The idea, though, that all individuals will be satisfied with their own possessions regardless of how hard they work, and that others should determine what they earn based on a collective need, is rejected through so many living examples of failed government.

    The table offers all of this in the form of an easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to distribute graphic.”!sm/

    All the race-baiters of the entitlement classes are 100% in the bag for Shrillary. Guys like Sharpton know they only way they hold power over their constituents depends upon convincing the dumbest among them to vote against their own self-interest.

    “The Clintons have proven they will continue to deliver for the power brokers in the minority community as long as long as they keep the voting block intact and disenfranchised. Hill will continue to deliver handouts to the Sharptons, etc. at the expense of the community overall. The last thing any of the Democratic establishment wants is for the minority community to be self sufficient.”
