According to media sources, the data released by the US Commerce Department showed that new U.S. single-family home sales fell unexpectedly in July to their lowest level in seven months.

The housing market is being hampered by a shortage of properties, which is driving up home prices.

New home sales plunged by 9.4% to 571,000 units in July after June’s sales was revised up to 630,000 units; however, economists’ expectations were calling for a 0.3% gain. On a yearly basis, the new home sales also fell by 8.9% in July, marking the first annual fall since February 2016.
