Confirming the strong housing data reported earlier by Case-Shiller which showed the fastest pace of home price appreciation since 2014, moments ago the Census reported that New Home Sales rose 5.8% in March to an annual pace of 621K units, just shy of the highest print going back to January 2008, and solidly beating expectations of a 585K print.
