Upbeat Buyers Push Prices Higher
Spring home buying activity picked up in May with home prices growing 1.3% over the previous quarter and soaring 8.2% annually, Clear Capital said Tuesday.
The yearly and quarterly gains are the result of market momentum and a low price floor, the data firm added.
"May home price trends confirm the recovery continues to mature," said Dr. Alex Villacorta, vice president of research and analytics at Clear Capital.
He added, "While there’s no questioning the validity of the recovery at this point, performances at the local level remained mixed when considering strength, sustainability and relative positions to 2006 prices."
At the metropolitan level, price trends remained mixed, a reminder that the recovery is locally driven.
Las Vegas takes the lead in the home value recovery, with yearly price gains of 27%. Phoenix, on the other hand, saw gains of 25.7%, putting Vegas ahead of the Arizona metro area for the first time since April 2012.
