New home sales rise in June
Sales of newly built homes rose last month to hit a five-year high in June, as the nation’s housing market showed little sign of slowing in June.
New home sales rose 8.3% over the prior month and 38.1% from the same month last year to hit a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 497,000 units, the Commerce Department said.
The median sales price of new homes was $249,700 last month. There was less than four months’ worth of homes for sale at the end of the month.
