July's new-home sales reports show more positive news for the real estate industry.
New-home sales increased by 9.6 percent in July from June, but are still down 13.4 percent from July 2008.
While new-home sales reflect economic and housing trends, they aren't a true reflection of existing-home sale trends, particularly since the first-time home buyer tax credit has likely encouraged many buyers to purchase existing homes rather than new ones.
