    the weather had nothing to do with it

    Sales of new homes fell 9.2 percent in January while the median price of a new home skidded to the lowest level in more than a year. Analysts blamed the worse-than-expected showing on inclement weather in many parts of the country rather than serious problems in the housing market.

    New home sales dipped to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.11 million units in January, and every region of the country except the West exhibited weakness, the Commerce Department said. The median price of a home, the point at which half sold for more and half for less, fell 13.2 percent to $199,400, the lowest level since December 2003.
