May 4th 2015 — Our parent company Realogy has posted a $1.1 billion in revenue in the first quarter of 2015, this is up 5% when compared to the first quarter of 2014, driven by a higher homesale transaction volume.
In a statement Richard Smith, Realogy’s chairman, chief executive officer and president said, “With 10% home sale volume growth, the first quarter was stronger than the 5% to 9% range we anticipated. The increases we saw in homesale transaction sides and average sale price in March, along with the strength of the sales contracts opened in March and April, are indicating a healthy spring selling season for the existing homesale market.”
“Looking ahead at the second quarter of 2015, we expect to see homesale transaction volume gains in the range of 8% to 11% year-over-year on a company-wide basis,” said Anthony E. Hull, executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer. “Based on our closed and open sales activity in March and April, we expect second quarter homesale transaction sides to be up 5% to 7% year-over-year and average sale price to increase 3% to 4% for RFG and NRT combined.”
