New home sales in the U-S rose 3-point-6% IN July. Forclosure sales down a bit.
With record low interest rates right now, District area home prices were among
those, up by 5-7% on average. VA home sales up by 4%, MD gains 5%, & DC returns to
the peak levels of 2006. Another good sign, car companies say they're selling more
trucks to contractors building new homes these days.
