Home Price Growth Leads the Nation


The CoreLogic February 2014 Home Price Index Report ranks Inland Southern California as the number one region for year-over-year home price growth which far outpaced the national average. Home prices in the region have increased 22.2% since February 2013 compared to the 12.2% nationwide gain.


The Inland region was followed closely by the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale region which experienced an 18.8% increase in home prices. California leads the nation in the top 5 States with the largest year-over-year appreciation with 19.8% growth, followed by Nevada, Georgia, Oregon and Michigan. 


"February marks two straight years of year-over-year gains in national prices across the United States. The consistent upward movement in home prices should ultimately prove to be an important stimulant for higher levels of sustained market activity and growth in the housing economy" commented Anand Nallathambl, president and CEO of CoreLogic. (Read more...)
