Existing homes sales in the U.S. have retreated in four of the past five months, but a new survey from the National Association of Realtors finds this slowdown is not because of a lack of confidence from consumers

According to the National Association of Realtors, U.S. home sales stumbled in August 2017 for the fourth time in five months as strained supply levels continue to subdue overall activity. Sales gains in the Northeast and Midwest were outpaced by declines in the South and West.

According to Freddie Mac's latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, the U.S. 30-year fixed mortgage rate dropped to a year-to-date low for the third consecutive week in 2017. The 10-year Treasury yield fell 9 basis points this week, reaching a new 2017-low for a second consecutive week.
