FNC Index: Home Prices Up 3.5% in the Second Quarter

According to the latest FNC Residential Price Index™ (RPI), average U.S. home prices continued a strong uptrend in recent months, climbing another 1.2% in June and ending the second quarter with a 3.5% increase from the first quarter.

Rising home sales and steady economic growth have largely contributed to rising prices. “The second quarter of 2015 marks the strongest seasonal price momentum since Spring 2005. It outpaced the same period in 2013 when the housing market was rebounding very strongly,” said Bob Dorsey, FNC’s chief data and analytics officer. “Housing has been, for a while, one of the bright spots in the broad economic growth; however, the momentum cannot sustain on its own without a strong, robust labor market, which is even all the more important with respect to policies designed to encourage first-time home buyers.”
