Home Prices Are Climbing At The Fastest Pace Since 1977

Home prices (including distressed sales) climbed 11.9% year-over-year in June, according to CoreLogic’s latest home price report. This is the sixteenth straight monthly rise in home prices. Prices were up 1.9% month-over-month.

Ex-distressed sales (short sales and REO transactions), home prices were up 11% on the year, and 1.8% mum.

Meanwhile, in the first half of the year, home prices were up 10%. “This trend in home price gains is moving at the fastest pace since 1977,” said CoreLogic’s chief economist, Mark Fleming in a press release.
