Stabilizing Median U.S. New Home Sale Prices

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


After having plunged from October 2018 through March 2019, median new home sale prices in the U.S. would appear to be stabilizing in recent months, with their initial trailing year average for June 2019 unchanged from the previous month at $319,300.

Trends in Trailing Twelve Month Average of Median U.S. New Home Sale Prices, July 2012 through June 2019

The decline in median new home sale prices began shortly after 30-year mortgage rates in the U.S. peaked at 4.87% in November 2018, the highest they had been since February 2011, which was nearly a full percentage point higher than the 3.92% recorded in November 2017. In June 2018 however, the average 30-year mortgage rates in the U.S. has dropped to 3.80%, having fallen by more than a full percentage point during the last seven months.

The decline in median new home sale prices while median household incomes in the U.S. have generally continued to rise has resulted in new homes becoming relatively more affordable in recent months. In June 2019, the median sale price of a new home sold in the U.S. was a little over five times the estimated median household income for the month.
