Today, I would like to talk about Home Prices: The Difference 5 Years Makes to home prices

The economists at CoreLogic recently released a special report entitled, Evaluating the Housing Market Since the Great Recession. The goal of the report was to look at economic recovery since the Great Recession of December 2007 through June 2009.

A key indicator used in the report to determine the health of the current housing market was home price appreciation. CoreLogic focused on appreciation from December 2012 to December 2017 to show how home prices over the last five years have changed.

Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, commented on the importance of breaking out the data by state,

“Homeowners in the United States experienced a run-up in prices from the early 2000’s to 2006 and then saw the trend reverse with steady declines through 2011. After finally reaching bottom in 2011, home prices began a slow rise back to where we are now.

Increasingly strong demand and very low supply, as well as vibrant job markets — particularly true in N. Virginia – have given some of the hardest-hit housing markets a boost in home prices. But, there are many areas that are still not back to pre-crash levels.”

The map below was created to show the national 5-year appreciation from December 2012 – December 2017 state by state.

Today let’s look at what difference 5 years can make to home prices.

Nationally, the cumulative appreciation over the five-year period was 37.4%, with a high of 66% in Nevada, and a modest increase of 5% in Connecticut.
