The Pending Home Sales (PHS) index measures housing contract activity. It is based on signed real estate contracts for existing single-family homes, condos and co-ops.
Pending home sales declined for the eighth straight month in February. Modest increases in the Midwest and West were offset by declines in the Northeast and South.
Next release: Pending Home Sales for March is scheduled for April 28, 2014
The monthly index covers the past 12 months for the nation and four regions. The data includes seasonally adjusted as well as not seasonally adjusted figures.
