NAR releases national and regional existing-home sales price and volume statistics on or about the 25th of each month. Each report includes data for 12 months and annual totals going back three years. Reports are available for existing single-family homes, condos, and co-ops. Both median and average prices are included.
Pending Home Sales Index
This leading indicator for housing activity is released during the first week of each month. The index measures housing contract activity. It is based on signed real estate contracts for existing single-family homes, condos, and co-ops.
Housing Affordability Index
The Housing Affordability Index measures whether or not a typical family earns enough income to qualify for a mortgage loan on a typical home at the national and regional levels based on the most recent monthly price and income data.
Metropolitan Median Home Prices and Affordability
NAR releases statistics on metropolitan area housing affordability and metropolitan area median home prices each quarter. The state existing-home sales report includes single-family houses, condos and co-ops. The price report reflects sales prices of existing single-family homes by metropolitan statistical area (MSA).
