According to the latest Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) House Price Index (HPI), U.S. house prices rose 4% from February 2022 through February 2023. Month to month, house prices were up 0.5% from January, 2023. The FHFA HPI is the nation’s only collection of public, freely available house price indexes that measure changes in single-family home values based on data from all 50 states and over 400 American cities that extend back to the mid-1970s.
“U.S. house prices increased slightly in February…This increase was, in part, due to a
decline in mortgage rates by more than half a percentage point from the peak reached in early November as well as historically low housing inventory” Said Dr. Nataliya Polkovnichenko, Supervisory Economist, in FHFA’s Division of Research and Statistics.
