REALTORS® Confidence Index cover

The REALTORS® Confidence Index (RCI) survey gathers on-the-ground information from REALTORS® based on their real estate transactions in the month. This report presents key results about market transactions.


  • On average, a home sold had more than 4 offers, slightly lower than the average of 5 offers in last month’s survey.

  • The share of first-time buyers remains unchanged in June at 31% (31% in the prior month, 35% one year ago).

  • Due to intense competition, the share of cash sales has increased to 23% from one year ago (16% one year ago) and the share of buyers making less than 20% down payment has decreased to 71% (77% one year ago).

  • The pandemic continues to impact how people live and work. A higher share of buyers, at 87%, purchased a property in a suburban, small town, rural, or resort area (84% one year ago).
