The housing market stumbled anew in February as sales of previously owned homes fell for the third consecutive month and the number of dwellings available for buyers climbed. Though sales declined 0.6% from the previous month, as reported Tuesday by the National Assn. of Realtors, the drop wasn't as bad as economists had expected. Still, analysts said the sales results showed that the nation's housing recovery -- fueled by tax subsidies, low interest rates and cheap foreclosure properties -- is struggling to sustain its momentum.

Home sales in California jumped 15.4% in October, indicating the state's housing recovery continued into the typically slower fall season. California's housing market has been on an upward swing this year. The rebound stems from more people chasing fewer homes as interest rates remain low and inventory sinks. As well as rising from September's level, home sales were up 15.2% from October 2011, according to real estate firm DataQuick. The statewide median price was $285,000 last month, a 0.7% decline from the prior month but up 18.8% from October 2011.

More California homes went under contract last month, as buyers showed signs of life heading into the spring season. Pending home sales across the state rose 22.9% from December, the first increase since October, the California Assn. of Realtors said Wednesday. The January figures boost confidence in a market that cooled after a torrid rebound early last year. Buyers have struggled with low inventory, higher mortgage rates and sharply higher prices. That has raised questions about just how robust the upcoming spring home-buying season will be. Quiz: How much do you know about mortgages?
