Pending home sales in California flat in May:Pending home sales in California remained flat in May but posted double-digit gains from the previous year for the fourth consecutive month, the Los Angeles-based California Association of Realtors reported today. Additionally, the share of distressed sales continued to decline from year-ago levels, signaling a return of non-investors to the housing market, according to a CAR statement. CAR's Pending Home Sales Index was unchanged in May from a revised 128.8 in April, based on signed contracts, but was up from the 115.8 index recorded in May 2011, it said, adding that May marked the 13th straight month that pending sales were higher than the previous year. According to CAR, pending home sales are forward-looking indicators of future activity, providing information on the future direction of the market. "Despite a slowdown in economic growth in recent months, sales in California remain strong as record low mortgage rates and favorable home prices continue to fuel demand in the housing market," said CAR President LeFrancis Arnold. "The strong results in pending sales double-digit year-over-year gains in the last nine out of 10 months suggest solid housing market performance for the state in the upcoming months."
