Texas July Home Sales Collapse - Lowest Total Since 1997

• GlobalEconomicAnalysis.blogspot.com
 
Inquiring minds are investigating Texas MLS Residential Housing Activity and home sale statistics. A tip of the hat to "Rob" who sent the above link. July 2010 Sales 16,729 July 2009 Sales 22,426 July 2008 Sales 23,636 July 2007 Sales 27,387 July 2006 Sales 27,586 July 2005 Sales 26,147 July 2004 Sales 24,031 July 2003 Sales 21,870 July 2002 Sales 19,660 July 2001 Sales 19,532 July 2000 Sales 17,866 July 1999 Sales 18,653 July 1998 Sales 18,021 July 1997 Sales 15,385 Be prepared for a reported collapse in home sales and for economists everywhere to be surprised by it. This is a 25.4% decline vs. July 2009. This is a 22.6% decline vs. June 2010. June 2010 sales were 21,610. While not as important as new home sales, think of all the carpeting, landscaping, appliance upgrades, cabinets, etc., that will all go "poof" right along with this decline.
