A sale of the new house occurs with the signing of a sales contract or the acceptance of a deposit. The house can be in any stage of construction: not yet started, under construction, or already completed. New home sales account for about 10 percent of the US housing market. New single-family home sales are extremely volatile month-to-month and preliminary figures are subject to large revisions because they are mostly drawn from building permits data.

Latest Updates

New home sales in the United States dropped 8.6% from a month earlier to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 763 thousand in March of 2022, following a revised 1.2% drop in the previous month and below market expectations of 765 thousand.
