The estimated sales of new homes in the United States for the month of September 2019 was 701,000, compared to 607,000 for the same month the previous year, according to figures released jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Census surveys provide current national and regional data on sales of new single-family houses.

Included are current-month estimates and revisions for previous months, for new houses sold and for sale at the national level and by Census Region, and for average and median sales prices at the national level.

The results help provide an overview of the nation’s current economic activity, and are used by manufacturers, insurance companies, and financial institutions to help ascertain supply and demand.
