新房销售跌至历史最低水平

上周公布的数据显示,新冠疫情限制措施出台以来的三个月中,新房销售量每月均进一步下降。

“3 月份,新房销售降至历史最低水平,4 月份进一步下降,5 月份又降低了,”住房行业协会(HIA)首席经济学家蒂姆·雷登顿
(Tim Reardon) 解释说。

“这种收缩的初步迹象最早将在 7 月展现,然后从 9 月起会较明显的进一步下降。”

5 月新房销售下降 4.3%。在截至 5 月的三个月里,销售额比前三个月下降了 20.3%。

截至 5 月底的三个月,销量也比 2019 年同期下降 18.2%,这已经是 2019 年联邦大选前的低点。

“与此同时,取消的项目数量一般在 7%-9% 左右,但现在已经达到26%。相比之下,08 年金融危机之后的取消率为17%,”雷登顿补充道。

“[然而]6月份宣布的 “住宅建设者 “计划应该会阻止新房销售的下降,并改善市场信心,不仅是对住宅建设领域,而且在更广泛的整个经济。

“这将改善行业在 2020 年下半年和 2021 年的就业前景,”他总结道。
