Home prices jump 12%, new home sales also rise

By Qiong (June) Zhang83 Comments


The housing recovery continues to pick up steam, as home prices jumped in April, and new home sales hit a five year high in May.

But a recent increase in mortgage rates could soon put the brakes on housing.

The S&P/Case-Shiller home price index was up 12.1% in April, compared to a year ago, in the 20 top real estate markets across the nation. That was the biggest annual jump in prices in seven years. Prices climbed 2.5% from March, posting the biggest one-month rise in the 12-year history of the index.

According to a separate government report: new homes sold in May is the best reading since July 2008. The pace of sales was up 2.1% from April, and up 29% from a year ago.

The median price of a new home sold in May was $263,900, down 3.1% from April. Even with the monthly decline, new home prices were up 10.3% from a year earlier.

A drop in foreclosures, coupled with a tight supply of homes for sale and mortgage rates that hit record lows, have fueled the rebound in housing over the last 11 months.

    I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means discovered any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s pretty price sufficient
    for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    net can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
