Home Demand Index | Historical Year-over-Year Comparison

The Index has decreased a cumulative 19 percent since June and remains markedly lower than one year earlier. Demand was Moderate during the spring and early summer but has been at a Steady pace since July. The combined effects of higher mortgage rates and consumer wariness about the economy likely contributed to the decrease.
