3 May's existing-home sales rose 5.1% from April to their best pace in 5-1/2 years, NAR said. All regions improved. Sales grew 9.2% from a year ago, the 8th straight month of yearly gains. The 1st-time-buyer share leapt to 32%, the strongest in nearly 3 years. Inventory grew, but supply remains tight and should push up prices.
