New-home sales get a big boost

By Catherine Reagor | The Arizona Republic

Rising interest rates, and the expectation home prices will rise soon, spurred a lot more people to buy new houses in metro Phoenix during the past month.

It’s a nice boost for the Valley’s homebuilding market that’s still recovering from the housing crash.

New-home sales were up 22 percent in the Phoenix area, reports Belfiore Real Estate Consulting.
