The pandemic pushed homes purchase to their highest level in 15 years for the national market. The quest for space as Americans worked from home due to the virus and the lowest mortgage rates in a generation have fueled the sales.

The fewest homes were for sale nationally last month -910,000- since the National Association of Realtors began keeping records in 1999.
