In August 2021, each of the four major U.S. regions experienced declines on both a month-over-month and a year-over-year perspective, breaking a two-month streak of increases.
August 2021 brought 5.88 million in sales, a median sales price of $356,700, and 2.6 months of inventory. The median sales price is up 14.9% year over year, and inventory is down 0.4 months from August 2020.
This report is a key indicator of housing market strength based on a monthly survey sent to over 50,000 real estate practitioners.
Total housing starts and housing permits made decent gains in August compared to the month prior, but the focus was on multifamily units.
