You start with 64 houses and sell 1/4 of them ...

(1/4) x 64 = 16

So, 16 houses were sold.

This means that 64 - 16 = 48 houses are still left to be sold.

This month, 3/4 of these houses were sold.

(3/4) x 48 = 36

So, 36 houses were sold this month.

This means that 48 - 36 = 12 houses that remain to be sold.
