For the first quarter Realogy posted a loss of -32 cents a share, missing the Capital IQ Consensus Estimate of a loss of -21 cents a share by 11 cents. Revenue grew 4.5% from the year-ago quarter to $1 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $1.1 billion for the quarter.
Looking to second quarter of 2014, Realogy expects homesale transaction volumes of between -2% to 2%.
"Realogy achieved homesale transaction volume growth of 10% year-over-year in the first quarter, which is at the midpoint of our prior guidance range," chairman and CEO Richard A. Smith said in a press release. "Our volume growth was driven by a 13% increase in average sales price that was partially offset by a 3% decline in transaction sides. We saw two opposing trends in the first quarter that caused an overall shift in Realogy's mix of business resulting in a higher average sale price and reduced transaction sides."
