Consensus Outlook
Existing home sales have been slowing and any rebound looks to be contained based on pending sales which are down sharply. Supply of resales on the market is very thin and a stubborn and increasing obstacle to sales growth. Econoday's consensus for February is a 5.420 million annualized rate which would be up from January's disappointing 5.380 million.

Existing home sales tally the number of previously constructed homes, condominiums and co-ops in which a sale closed during the month. Existing homes (also known as home resales) account for a larger share of the market than new homes and indicate housing market trends. (National Association of Realtors)  Why Investors Care
Existing home sales reached a peak in mid-2005. Sales picked up during the recovery until a slower economy cut into sales in late 2013 and early 2014. But over much of the recovery, lift came from the Fed's quantitative easing to lower mortgage rates. Mortgage rate shown is rate on 30-year conventional mortgages.
