Analysts Say Housing Is on the Way Up

Analysts at both Standard & Poor’s and Barclays Capital agree that the uptick in home resales last month is a favorable sign of things to come. Because pending home sales — an indicator of future activity — were up in February, S&P believes transaction volume will rise for April.

Barclays, meanwhile, says March’s 3.7 percent gain in existing-home sales merely reinforces its position that the housing market actually hit bottom in late 2010.
