Excluding distressed sales, home prices nationwide also increased on a
year-over-year basis by 5.8 percent in October 2012 compared to October 2011.
On a month-over-month basis excluding distressed sales, home prices increased
0.5 percent in October 2012 compared to September 2012, the eighth consecutive
month-over-month increase. Distressed sales include short sales and real
estate owned (REO) transactions.

The CoreLogic Pending HPI indicates that November 2012 home prices, including
distressed sales, are expected to rise by 7.1 percent on a year-over-year
basis from November 2011 and fall by 0.3 percent on a month-over-month basis
from October 2012 as sales exhibit a seasonal slowdown going into the winter.
Excluding distressed sales, November 2012 house prices are poised to rise 7.4
percent year-over-year from November 2011 and by 0.5 percent month-over-month
from October 2012. The CoreLogic Pending HPI is a proprietary and exclusive
metric that provides the most current indication of trends in home prices. It
is based on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data that measure price changes for
the most recent month.

"The housing recoverythat started earlier in 2012 continues to gain
momentum," said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. "The recovery is
geographically broad-based with almost all markets experiencing some
appreciation. Sand and energy states continue to experience the most robust
appreciation and some judicial foreclosure states are even recording
increasing prices."

"We are seeing an ongoing strengthening of the residential housing market,"
said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "Reduced inventories
and improving buyer demand are contributing to stability and growth in home
prices which is essential to the long term health of the housing market and
the broader economy."

set of monthly home price indices available covering 6,790 ZIP codes (58
percent of total U.S. population), 624 Core Based Statistical Areas (86
percent of total U.S. population) and 1,192 counties (84 percent of total U.S.
population) located in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
