White House says US housing market bottoming out
WASHINGTON Aug 21 (Reuters) - The U.S. housing market appears to be bottoming out, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Friday after an industry survey showed sales of previously owned U.S. homes jumped 7.2 percent in July.
Gibbs also said President Barack Obama was pleased with the administration's progress in stabilizing the economy but said he would not be satisfied until the economy is back on track.
