New home construction and existing home sales are projected to push the total home sales to the highest levels in years in 2016. Most of the gains will be in a resurgence of housing starts and new home sales, an area that has suffered in recent years, with existing home sales coming in at a more modest 3% increase in sales.
“Next year’s moderate gains in existing prices and sales, versus the accelerated growth we’ve seen in previous years, indicate that we are entering a normal, but healthy housing market,” says Johnathon Smoke, realtor.com’s chief economist
