HUD Releases National Housing Data

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its Annual Characteristics of New Housing (2020) data on June 1, 2021.  The data provides national, annual data on the characteristics of new privately-owned residential structures, such as square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of wall material, and sales prices. Many characteristics are available at the regional level. The data source is the Survey of Construction (SOC), which is partially funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It also includes a Single Family Interactive House Infographic showing detailed characteristics such as square footage and sales price.


Among the key findings included in the Highlights of Annual 2020 Characteristics of New Housing​ are: 

  • Median size of a completed single family house was 2,261 square feet.
  • Median size of multifamily units built for rent was 1,075 square feet; median of those built for sale was 1,306 square feet.
  • Median sales price of new single-family homes sold in 2020 was $336,900; the average sales price was $391,900. 
  • Total of 123,000 contractor-built single-family homes were started in 2020.  Median contract price was $298,500.
