2021 Highlights of Home Buyers and Sellers


The National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers is an annual survey of recent home buyers and sellers who recently completed a transaction. Through data collected from a nationally representative sample of recent home sales, NAR found the following highlights.
Home Seller Highlights

For recently sold homes, the final sales price was a median of 100 percent of the final listing price, the highest recorded since 2002.

Recently sold homes were on the market for a median of one week, a drop from three weeks in 2020.

This year, home sellers cited that they sold their homes for a median of $85,000 more than they purchased it, a jump from $66,000 last year.

Home Buyer Highlights

Buyers typically purchased their homes for 100 percent of the asking price, with 29 percent purchasing for more than asking price.

The median distance between the home that recent buyers purchased and the home they moved from was only 15 miles. 

Convenience to friends and family was the second most important factor in influencing neighborhood choice, after quality of the neighborhood. This surpassed convenience to job and affordability, which were more important last year.
