"New monthly sales record were established in every region of the country," said the National Association of Realtors. Resale activity in September, it reported, was 25.7 per cent ahead of the year-earlier rate. In all, 266,000 homes were sold during September, which Realtors said worked out to a seasonally adjusted annual pace of 3.33 million sales. Because of a lower rate earlier this year, actual sales for 1976 are expected to be more than 2.7 million, a record. The vigorous pace of activity in the resale market has gone relatively unnoticed by some of the public and even by professional economists, because of the highly visible depression in the new-home market. But, while the economy was in the midst of the recession, millions of Americans exercised their own individual judgments that used homes were good buys. . The existing home market is unique in some respects. It is all but unorganized. Rather than reflecting the concerted activity of volume sellers and buyers, or the effectiveness of sales promotion, it represents many private decisions. Real estate people repeatedly hear customers refer to existing homes as being better built and more commodious, and often that the neighborhoods in which such houses exist are mature and stable, and better supplied with services and conveniences. The breakdown by the Realtors does not include sales figures on urban versus suburban home sales, but some of the activity is likely to represent a renewed interest in core-city living. The survey shows that the market was particularly brisk in the West, where, on a seasonally adjusted basis, sales rose an unprecedented 15.3 per cent over the August pace. The next strongest performance was the 10.2 per cent gain posted in the Northeast, but sales also were above expectations in the Southern and north-central regions, with monthly gains of 8 per cent and 3.5 per cent, respectively. Again contrary to patterns existing in the economy as a whole, the median sale price of an existing single-family home fell in September tc $38,700 or $700 below the August level. More significantly, the Realtors report, prices in September were just 8.1 per cent above the level of a year ago, and well below the 10.8 per cent rise in 1974 and the 10.4 per cent climb in 1975. The West was an exception to the price trend, with sales tags rising sharply. Reports from that region show prices have risen 16.9 per cent over the past 12 months. The median price in the West was $47,800 in September, compared with $28,600 in September 1972. The median Northeast price was $43,100 compared with $30,800 in 1970. The least expensive area consisted of the north-central states, where September prices were $33,400 or $11,400 more than five years ago. In the Southern region the median price was $36,200 versus $26,700 five years earlier. While some of the activity is believed to reflect the lessening of options because of a low rate of new-home construction, there is a good deal of persistence to the upturn. In only one year since 1968 has there been a decline from the previous year. That was in 1974, when sales dipped to 2,272,000 from 2,334,-000 a year earlier. But the rise resumed in 1975, with sales of ns ycttuiiirs to snij(oy with every luxurious 2 bedroom2 bath adult villa home individually detached adult villa homes for privacy... just relax while the maintenance is done for you ! ! !
