Asking Prices Up 3.8 Percent Year-over-Year Nationally In October, asking home prices rose 0.8 percent month-over-month (M-o-M), seasonally adjusted–which implies an annualized growth rate of 10 percent.

Quarter-over-quarter (Q-o-Q) prices rose 2.2 percent, seasonally adjusted, another post-crisis high; in fact, prices rose 0.8 percent Q-o-Q without adjusting for seasonality (not shown in table), even though prices typically decline after the summer.

Unlike other hard-hit metros such as Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Miami, prices in these metros have been slower to bounce back, declining in February and making smaller gains in August and May. Other metros experiencing large quarterly increases in November include Salt Lake City and Wilmington, DE, both of which surpassed 7 percent, along with, Cape Coral – Fort Myers, FL, San Jose, Portland, OR, and Denver.

Rents Rose 5.6 Percent Year-over-Year, But Prices Catching Up in Largest Markets Nationally, rents rose 5.6 percent Y-o-Y, outpacing the national price gain of 3.8 percent. However, asking prices in 14 of the 25 largest rental markets actually rose faster than rents as the price recovery picks up. In fact, prices have zoomed ahead of fast-rising rents in Denver, Seattle, and San Francisco, which rank among the top 10 metros where rents rose most in November.

PRE-APPROVED QUOTES *“Prices are rising faster than at any point since the bubble burst, but the price recovery is becoming more uneven,” said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s Chief Economist. “Even though prices rose at a 10 percent annualized rate in the last quarter, more metros are seeing price declines. The price recovery is strongest in the largest metros, and price gains have now surpassed rent gains in the largest 25 rental markets. However, price gains are starting to waver in smaller markets.” *“The key factors behind today’s price gains are job growth, falling vacancies, and–above all–rebounding from the huge price declines of the housing bust,” said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s Chief Economist. “The latest metros to join the price rebound are Atlanta, Sacramento, and Riverside-San Bernardino. Now, all of the metros that suffered most during the bust have had year-over-year price gains.” MULTIMEDIA *To read the full report, seehere. *To download the full list of price and rent changes for the largest metro areas, seehere. *To download a graph of price changes from November 2010 to November 2012, seehere.
