New Single Family Home Sales


Business Outlook: THE WEEK AHEAD

NEW SINGLE-FAMILY HOME SALES

Thursday, Sept. 29, 10 a.m.

New homes likely sold at an annual rate of 650,000 in August, say the MMS economists. That decline is suggested by the 2.7% drop in single-family housing starts in the month. Home sales jumped 8.3% in July, to a 664,000 pace, but higher interest rates, especially for adjustable-rate mortgages, are beginning to crimp the housing upturn. Sales peaked in the fourth quarter of 1993.JAMES C. COOPER AND KATHLEEN MADIGAN
