According to the Pending Home Sales Index just released by the National Association of REALTORS®, March saw another increase in pending home sales, with a gain of 5.1% over February.

 “Since reaching a cyclical bottom in June of 2010, pending home sales have posted an overall gain of 24 percent and demonstrate the market is recovering on its own,” according to NAR chief economist Lawrence Yun.

 “The good news is that recent home buyers are staying well within budget, leading to exceptionally low loan default rates among home buyers over the past two years,” Yun added.
