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 increased in March and remain above year-ago levels, but contract activity in recent months shows only modest movement.
Next release: Pending Home Sales Index will be released on May 30, 10 a.m. ET.
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.
