According to data released by the US Commerce Department, new U.S. single-family home sales witnessed their biggest fall in December since last February.

New home sales fell 10.4% to an annual pace of 536,000 units and stood high above the economists’ estimates of a drop of 1.0% in a Reuters’ poll.

Analysts remarked that the sharp drop in home sales stemmed from higher mortgage rates, which increased 43 basis points in December to an average 4.20% after a 30-year of stability.
