according to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), reversing February’s
sales gain of 14.5%. Fluctuations in mortgage interest rates have caused buyers to
pullback, with pending sales dropping 5.2% month-over-month. Meanwhile, the
median existing-home sales price declined for the second month in a row, falling
0.9% nationally from the same time last year, the largest year-over-year decline since
