The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently reported in their Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) that, pending home sales increased in April for the fourth consecutive month and reached their highest peak in nine years. All four major regions saw growth in April, led by the Northeast and Midwest. “The steady gains in contract activity each month this year highlight the fact that buyer demand is strong,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist. "Realtors are saying foot traffic remains elevated this spring despite limited—and in some cases severe—inventory shortages in many metro areas. “

The index is a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, NAR reported. It increased 3.4 percent to 112.4 in April from a slight upward revision of 108.7 in March and is now 14 percent above 98.6 in April 2014. This is the largest annual increase since 15.1 percent in September 2012. Year-over-year, the index has increased for eight consecutive months and is at its highest level since 112.5 in May 2006.
