Single-family homes for sale - Orange Line - The number of homes for sale at the end of the month.
Under contract, but accepting backup offers (UCB) - Gray Line - The number of UCB contracts at the end of the month.*
- Pending home sales - Yellow Line - The number of pending sales at the end of the month.*
