Current sales rates, actual totals and median prices by month going back 12 months. Annual totals for three years.

Figures for the nation only — includes total existing-home sales, single-family sales and condo/co-op sales — seasonally adjusted and actual. Months supply by category also included. Median and average sales prices for all existing-home sales, for single-family sales and for condo-co-op sales.
Each February, NAR Research incorporates a normal review of seasonal activity factors and fine-tunes historic data for the past three years based on the most recent findings. Revisions have been made to monthly seasonally adjusted annual sales rates for 2011 through 2013, as well as the inventory month's supply data; most revisions are minor with little or no impact on previous characterizations of the overall market. There are no revisions to monthly home prices (single family and condo) or to raw inventory data (beyond normal prior-month revisions).
