National Home Prices Nearing Pre-Crash Levels
Aug 26 2013, 11:11AM – From Mortgage News Daily

Home prices keep edging closer to pre-crash price levels and today’s Home Price Index report from Lender Processing Services (LPS) indicates that national prices are now back within 15.2 percent of that peak.  The index for June rose to $229,000 from 226,000 in May, an increase of 1.2 percent and is up 6.9 percent from the end of last year.  The peak, in June 2006, was $270,000.

LPS used its loan-level databases and June 2013 residential real estate transactions to conduct a repeat sales analysis of home prices.  The LPS HPI represents the price of non-distressed sales by taking into account price discounts for bank-owned real estate (REO) and short sales.

States with the biggest month-over-month appreciation were Nevada, up 2.4 percent, Florida, 1.7 percent, and California and Illinois at 1.6 percent each.  Other states with increases exceeding one percent in a month were Delaware, Georgia, Utah, North Dakota, Colorado, and Arizona.



All states showed some appreciation from May to June but the smallest gains were in Nebraska at 0.4 percent, Alaska at 0.5 percent, and Iowa at 0.6 percent.  Click Here for Full Article
