WASHINGTON - Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew Cuomo welcomed the announcement by the National Association of Realtors today that home resales hit a new record in March, rising 2.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.89 million units.
"Low mortgage interest rates, high employment and high consumer confidence in a prosperous future have combined to bring about the highest rate of existing home sales in 30 years.
