CoreLogic® Reports Home Prices Rise by 11.8% Year Over Year in November; Analysis Projects First Month-Over-Month Decline in December
Excluding distressed sales, home prices increased 0.3 percent month over month in November 2013 compared to October 2013. On a year-over-year basis, home prices, excluding distressed sales, increased by 10.4 percent in November 2013 compared to November 2012. Distressed sales include short sales and real-estate owned (REO) transactions. Irvine, CA-based CoreLogic is a leading residential property information, analytics and services provider.
The CoreLogic Pending HPI indicates that December 2013 home prices, including distressed sales, are expected to dip 0.1 percent month over month from November to December 2013, with a projected increase of 11.5 percent on a year-over-year basis from December 2012. Excluding distressed sales, December 2013 home prices are poised to rise 0.2 percent month over month from November 2013 and 10.6 percent year over year from December 2012. The CoreLogic Pending HPI is a proprietary and exclusive metric that provides the most current indication of trends in home prices. It is based on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data that measure price changes for the most recent month.
"The housing market paused as expected in November for the holiday season with very low month-over-month appreciation. Year-over-year home prices are up an impressive 11.8 percent," said Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. "Our pending HPI projects that home prices will grow by 11.5 percent for the full year 2013. That will make 2013 the best year for home-price appreciation since 2005."
"On a year-over-year basis, home prices have appreciated every month in 2013. Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia are now at or within 10 percent of their peaks," said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "The outlook for 2014 looks a bit less robust as regulatory complexities and tight credit can be expected to cool the housing market."
