Home Price Index Audio Clip: January 2019

By Molly Boesel Housing Affordability, Real Estate

The CoreLogic HPI for January 2019 shows that home prices increased by 4.4 percent from a year ago. January marked the 84th month of consecutive year-over-year price increases – that’s seven straight years. During this seven years, the National HPI increased by 57 percent, surpassing the pre-housing crisis peak level by 6 percent. January also marked the ninth consecutive month of slowing annual HPI growth, a trend that is forecast to continue through 2019. Idaho, with an increase of 11.2 percent, and Nevada, with an increase of 10.2 percent were the only states to increase at double digits, and Louisiana and North Dakota were the only states to show decreases in prices, falling by less than one percent each.
