This page provides national and regional data on the number of new single-family houses sold and for sale. It also provides national data on median and average prices, the number of houses sold and for sale by stage of construction, and other statistics. The data are from the Survey of Construction (SOC), which is partially funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

2/26/24 - Beginning with the April 2024 New Residential Sales release on May 23, 2024, the sales price range groups in Table 2, "New Privately-Owned Houses Sold, by Sales Price" will be updated to better reflect the current distribution of new home prices. New price groupings will also be introduced in our time series file "New Houses Sold and For Sale by Price Range". Data between January 2020 and March 2024 will be re-calculated incorporating any additional data and revisions received since initial publication and re-released in the new price groupings. Data from 2002-2019 will be archived in a time series file with the former price groupings. In addition, data in the "Quarterly Sales by Price and Financing", the price index for "Quarterly Single-Family Houses Sold" and all tables containing historical median and average sales price data will be revised between January 2020 and March 2024.

2/26/24 - With the January 2024 New Residential Construction release on February 16, 2024, we are updating our current and historical excel tables from the .xls format to the new .xlsx format. In addition, the format of these tables will also be updated to meet current accessibility requirements. This will also reduce file sizes and provide access to more recent Microsoft Excel features for data users. For additional information on this change and a list of files that are being updated please see the History File Update announcement.
