Home Sales in June Rise for the Third Consecutive Month

From an article in the New York Times, the number of home sales for 'previously occupied homes' rose for the third month in a row. These numbers are for existing homes but do not include new construction.

The median sales price for homes in the US was $181,800 in June, up from $174,700 in May. However this is down 15.4% from the month of June 2008 when the median home sale price was $215,000.
