Low mortgage rates didn't help home sales in the month of March as the National Association of Realtors reported a drop in existing home sales. Mortgage rates are lower so far in 2014, current 30 year mortgage rates are at 4.25 percent, down from an average rate of 4.53 percent in early January.

Despite lower mortgage rates, the NAR reported existing home sales fell 0.02 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.59 million in March from 4.60 million in February, and are 7.5 percent below the 4.96 million-unit pace in March 2013.

Housing analysts believed the weakness in the housing market at the start of 2014 was due to the harsh cold winter. Analysts expected a rebound in the March numbers but that hasn't materialized. “There really should be stronger levels of home sales given our population growth,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, via a statement. The sales pace is under-performing historic norms, Yun noted. “In contrast, price growth is rising faster than historical norms because of inventory shortages.”

Yun expects some improvement in the months ahead. “With ongoing job creation and some weather delayed shopping activity, home sales should pick up, especially if inventory continues to improve and mortgage interest rates rise only modestly.” Whether or not this pans out remains to be seen but one thing that should help housing is low mortgage rates.
