Jun 27, 2017
The median price for a new single-family home reached a record high in May of $345,800, the Commerce Department reports. Buyers will be paying a huge premium for new construction, as new-home prices are now 16.8 percent higher than they were a year ago.

In the Northeast, new-home sales fell 10.8 percent.
