Home Prices Continue to Rise; May by 0.8 Percent

FNC announced Thursday that U.S. home prices continued to show notable upward trends in May, extending April gains for two consecutive months of positive price momentum.

As a gauge of underlying home value, the RPI excludes sales of foreclosure homes – often sold with large price discounts due to poor property conditions, such as neglected maintenance, theft, vandalism, and abandonment. The latest gains captured by the RPI occurred despite continued pressure from higher volumes of foreclosure sales and their steep price discounts.
