Here,

For New homes there is rise from the year = 1970 to 1972 and then decrease from the year 1972 to 1973

For existing home = from the year 1972 to the year 1973 there has been increase

So, the answer is = 1973 , as the increase over the previous year in the number of existing homes sold, but a decrease in the number of new homes sold
