Overall, the nation's total existing-home sales declined 3.5 percent, settling at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.67 million units in July, down from 4.84 million in June. However, the rate is 21 percent above the pace of 3.86 million in July 2010, which was the first month following the expiration of the federal homebuyer tax credit.

Regionaly, the Northeast recorded 2.7 percent more existing-home sales during the month, followed by the Midwest with a 1 percent increase. However, the South experienced 1.6 percent fewer sales, while existing-home transactions plummeted 12.6 percent in the West.
