NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun
 
 NAR, the National Association of Realtors┬«, has released its pending home sales for August 2018. The pending home sales index is a leading indicator of housing activity. It measures housing contract activity, and is based on signed real estate agreements for existing single family homes condominiums and co-ops. Because a home goes under agreement a month or more before it closes the pending home sales index generally leads existing home sales by a month or more.

What is interesting is that for our area Yun noted that year-over-year increases in active listings from data at realtor.com shows the Providence-Warwick, RI-Mass is one of 5 areas across the county that saw some of the largest increase in active listings compared to a year ago. Simply put, if you are in the market to become a homeowner you have had more options this year compared to last.
