Prices on homes also continued to increase but at one-third the rate of 2013's pace.
DataQuick, a San Diego-based company, reported potential homebuyers are still dealing with a limited supply of inventory, prices at or near new highs and a tough lending environment.
There were 7,915 new and resale houses and condos sold in the Bay Area in June, up 0.2% from the 7,898 sold in May, according to DataQuick.
June sales were also up 0.2% from the 7,897 sold in June 2013.
In June, the median price for a home in the Bay Area reached $618,000, the highest price since the November 2007 median price reached $629,000.
The June median price increased by 0.2% over the May median price of $617,000 and increased by 11.4% over the June 2013 median price of $555,000.
The Bay Area's median price for a home hit a low of $290,000 in March 2009.
DataQuick reported foreclosure resales accounted for 3.1% of all resales. That number was unchanged from May and down from 5.7% in June 2013.
