May 2006 May 2007 June 2006 June 2007

Median price $235300 $236100 $231600 $237900
Avg. price $294300 $313000 $290600 $316200
#units sold 1087000 893000 1073000 834000


Note all numbers except June 2007 are the revised numbers (i.e. final)

Also note the May and June 2006 numbers were revised twice: for example June 2006: initial 1131000 revised to 1120000 in 7/06, then revised again to 1073000 in 6/07.

Another interesting trend: in the past several years, there does NOT seem to be any evidence that the summer months are any different sales volume wise with any part of the rest of the year - except slightly vs. January/February.
