FNC Index: Home Prices Up 0.6% in June; Signs of Sustainable Recovery At Large

The latest FNC Residential Price Index™ (RPI) shows that the U.S. housing recovery continues to take hold with home prices nationwide rising a modest 0.6% in June. The index is reaching a two-year high after rising 16 straight months. The 16-month rising streak has lifted home prices by 7.6% since February 2012-the month in which the housing market bottomed out.

According to the FNC RPI, the pace of the price improvement in the ongoing recovery is much more modest than indicated by a number of other closely watched home price indices, with some of the largest differences seen in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Washington D.C. markets. The difference may be due to these other indices being based on pairs of repeat sales, many of which are distressed properties in a prior sale. Other factors that may impact this divergence include the growing influence of new home sales, which are not included in repeat sales indices, and a disproportionate number of low value home sales relative to the housing stock. As an indicator of the underling home price trend, the FNC RPI excluded distressed sales and includes new home sales.
