Spot­light on hous­ing

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - BUSINESS -

Econ­o­mists an­tic­i­pate that sales of new U.S. homes slowed in Septem­ber for the sec­ond month in a row.

The Com­merce De­part­ment is ex­pected to re­port to­day that sales reached a sea­son­ally ad­justed an­nual rate of 600,000 units last month. That would be down from 609,000 in Au­gust. De­spite that pull­back, new home sales are run­ning 20.1 per­cent higher through the first eight months of this year.
