New Home Sales in U.S. Jump 27%

The Commerce Department announced this morning that the sale of new homes in the US jumped 27 percent in March. The result was much better than expected especially after February’s tally which set a record low. The median sales price was $214,000, up more than 4 percent from a year earlier but down more than 3 percent from February.
