Home Price Index Audio Clip: June 2018

By Molly Boesel Housing Affordability, Real Estate

The CoreLogic HPI for June 2018 showed that national home prices appreciated 6.8 percent from a year ago, and the CoreLogic home price forecast shows an increase of 5.1 percent over the next year. With the first half of 2018 behind us, the six-month HPI gain of 4.5 percent gives 2018 the strongest first-half gain in national home prices since 2013. Washington state had the highest gain during this time at 9.8 percent, and North Dakota with a slight drop of 0.1 percent, was the only state to see a decline in home prices for the first half of 2018.
