Neue Daten zu Immobilien in den USA: Die Verkäufe bestehender US-Häuser (Existing home sales; Oktober) sind mit -4,1 Prozent und einer Jahresrate von 3,79 Millionen zum Vormonat schwächer ausgefallen als erwartet (Prognose war eine Jahresrate von 3,90 Millionen, Vormonat war 3,95 Millionen).
Die Verkäufe sinken um -14,6% im Jahresvergleich. Die Preise für die Häuser steigen im Vergleich zum Vorjahresmonat im Median um +3,4,%
Die Verkäufe bestehender Häuser machen den Großteil der Transaktionen von Immobilien in den USA aus und sind daher von besonderer Bedeutung.
Dazu schreibt die NAR, die die Daten ermittelt:
Existing-home sales dropped in October, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. Among the four major U.S. regions, sales slid in the Northeast, South and West but were unchanged in the Midwest. All four regions experienced year-over-year sales declines.
Total existing-home sales – completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops – fell 4.1% from September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 3.79 million in October. Year-over-year, sales tumbled 14.6% (down from 4.44 million in October 2022).
„Prospective home buyers experienced another difficult month due to the persistent lack of housing inventory and the highest mortgage rates in a generation,“ said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. „Multiple offers, however, are still occurring, especially on starter and mid-priced homes, even as price concessions are happening in the upper end of the market.“
Total housing inventory registered at the end of October was 1.15 million units, up 1.8% from September but down 5.7% from one year ago (1.22 million). Unsold inventory sits at a 3.6-month supply at the current sales pace, up from 3.4 months in September and 3.3 months in October 2022.
The median existing-home price3 for all housing types in October was $391,800, an increase of 3.4% from October 2022 ($378,800). All four U.S. regions registered price increases.
„While circumstances for buyers remain tight, home sellers have done well as prices continue to rise year-over-year, including a new all-time high for the month of October,“ Yun said. „In fact, a typical homeowner has accumulated more than $100,000 in housing wealth over the past three years.“
