Sales were up in all regions:

  • Northeast up 6.9% m/m; Sept. fell 3.2%

  • Midwest up 11.8% m/m; Sept. fell 3.5%

  • South up 8% m/m; Sept. fell 2.1%

  • West up 2.1% m/m; Sept. fell 1.4%

Pending home sales are often looked to as a leading indicator of existing-home purchases given properties typically go under contract a month or two before they’re sold.

Motivated by fast-rising rents and the anticipated increase in mortgage rates, consumers that are on strong financial footing are signing contracts to purchase a home sooner rather than later,” Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said in a statement.

“This solid buying is a testament to demand still being relatively high, as it is occurring during a time when inventory is still markedly low.”

And all this as homebuyers' sentiment is crashing to record lows… makes you wonder who is buying, eh?
