New Home sales plunged in March

Problems in subprime mortgages caused a sharp drop in home sellers being able to find buyers for their homes in March, according to a trade group report Tuesday that showed the battered real estate market was much weaker than expected.

The National Association of Realtors' Pending Home Sales Index fell 4.9 percent in March, following a 1.1 percent increase in February. The index was down 10.5 percent from the March 2006 reading.

After February's small uptick, March drops like a rock. The National Association of Realtors blames the sudden unavailability of subprime loans. But the massive bailing of speculators from the market must be a factor also.

The NAR is also projecting a small rise in the index in the second half of the year. But I think that be better classified as desperately praying for rather then projecting.
