"At first glance, Wednesday’s report that sales of existing homes gained by just 0.6% in April, after adjusting for seasonal factors, seems unremarkable."

"In California, home sales fell by 4% in April from one year earlier, according to real-estate data firm PropertyRadar, but this headline masks big changes.
