U.S. Existing Home Sales Unexpectedly Rebound In January

After reporting a notable decrease in existing home sales for the month of December, the National Association of Realtors released a report on Thursday showing that existing home sales saw a modest rebound in January.

NAR said existing home sales rose 0.4 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.92 million in January after falling 1.2 percent to a downwardly revised 4.90 million in December.

The rebound came as a surprise to economists, who had expected existing home sales to dip to an annual rate of 4.90 million from the 4.94 million originally reported for the previous month.
