CoreLogic: Home prices surge 7% annually in October – Are the homebuyers finding you?
Home prices increased across the U.S. from last month and last year, according to the latest Home Price Index from CoreLogic, a property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider. Home prices increased a full 7% from October 2016 to October this year and 0.9% from September to October, the CoreLogic HIP showed.
“Single-family residential sales and prices continued to heat up in October,” CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said. “On a year-over-year basis, home prices grew in excess of 6% for four consecutive months ending in October, the longest such streak since June 2014. This escalation in home prices reflects both the acute lack of supply and the strengthening economy.”
The chart below shows that, until recent months, home price increases hovered near 5%.
In fact, home prices are up so much that out of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, 37% are now considered overvalued based on the area’s housing stock. In October, 26% of markets were undervalued and 37% were at value. But these surging home prices will not continue into 2018, according to the CoreLogic HPI forecast. Home prices will increase by 4.2% from October 2017 to October 2018, and will increase just 0.2% from October to November. [read full article here]
