Corelogic released their January housing report and its a doozy.
Home prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased year over year by 19.1% in January 2022 compared with January 2021. On a month-over-month basis, home prices increased by 1.4% in January 2022 compared with December 2021 (revisions with public records data are standard, and to ensure accuracy, CoreLogic incorporates the newly released public data to provide updated results).
But Corelogic is still forecasting only 3.8% YoY growth in 2022.
Home prices are hot, hot, hot in all states except North Dakota and New York. The fastest growing states are lower taxes, higher growth states.
Phoenix, Las Vegas and San Diego are booming. But Chicago and Washington DC are growing at near 9% YoY.
Case-Shiller’s December report show home prices growing at 18.84% YoY thanks to Fed stimulypto and historic low inventory of homes available for sale.
