报告显示:房市和失业可能影响美国经济复苏Reports Show Housing, Unemployment Could Hurt US Recovery

22 July, 2010

有关美国房地产和失业的最新报告显示,尽管美国经济整体上在恢复,但是这两个行业仍然举步维艰。

一个民间行业组织星期四发表的报告显示,6月份二手房的销售比5月份减少了5.1%。

美国房地产经纪人协会表示,以目前的销售速度,需要将近9个月的时间才能把现在市场上所有的二手房销售出去。

该协会的首席经济学家劳伦斯·云也表示,房屋销售的步伐在经济开始创造更多的就业机会之前都将继续走缓。

New reports on housing and unemployment show both sectors continue to struggle despite the overall U.S. economic recovery.

A report Thursday by a private trade group found sales of previously owned homes fell 5.1 percent from May to June.

The National Association of Realtors said that at the current pace of sales it would take about nine months to sell all of the previously-owned homes on the market.

NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun also said that the pace of home sales will continue to slow until the economy starts creating more jobs.
