A count of all the listings that went into Pending / Under Contract during
the reported period.
Pending / Under Contract listings are counted at the end of the reported
period. Each listing
can only be counted one time. If a listing goes into Pending / Under
Contract, out of Pending /
Under Contract, then back into Pending / Under Contract all in one
reported period, this listing
would only be counted once. This is the most real-time measure possible
for home buyer
activity, as it measures signed contracts on sales rather than the actual
closed sale. As such, it
is called a “leading indicator” of buyer demand.
Under Contract Activity
A count of all listings Under Contract during the reported period.
Listings that go Under
Contract are counted each day. There is no maximum number of times a
listing can be counted
as Under Contract. For example, if a listing goes into Under Contract, out
of Under Contract,
then back into Under Contract all in one reported period, this listing
would be counted twice.

A measure of home values in a market area where 50% of

price and average
income by county.
A measure of the number of homes available for sale at a given time. The
availability of homes
for sale has a big effect on supply-demand dynamics and home prices.
Months Supply of Listings
A measure of how balanced the market is between buyers and sellers. It is expressed as the
number of months it would hypothetically take to sell through all the
available homes for sale,
given current levels of home sales. A balanced market ranges from 4 to 7
months of supply. A
buyer’s market has a higher number, reflecting fewer buyers relative to
homes for sale. A
seller’s market has a lower number, reflecting more buyers relative to
homes for sale.
