That clocks in 6.6% below the revised May rate of 724,000 and is 19.4% below the June 2020 estimate of 839,000.

The median sales price of new houses sold in June 2021 was $361,800, and the average sales price was $428,700. The seasonally adjusted estimate of new houses for sale at the end of June was 353,000. This represents a supply of 6.3 months at the current sales rate.

Preliminary results show that seasonally adjusted home sales dipped across the country compared to June 2020, save for in the Midwest, which saw the only increase.
