For Week Ending November 18, 2017

Home price appreciation is on the rise in most of the country, which is welcome news for any homeowner that experienced a time when it was not. Although trends vary by region and state, the overarching trend is increased prices, according to research performed by the National Association of REALTORS® on American Community Survey data from 2005 through 2016. Price growth is strongest in the South and less so in the Northeast, and only a few states show no growth or losses. Affordability is most favorable in the Midwest, and the West is least affordable, on average.
