According to the latest CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) Report, home prices (including distressed sales) were up 3.6% year-over-year in May, 2019.  CoreLogic predicts that home prices will increase by 5.6% on a year-over-year basis from through May, 2020.  The CoreLogic HPI Forecast is a projection of home prices using the CoreLogic HPI and other economic variables. Values are derived from state-level forecasts by weighting indices according to the number of owner-occupied households for each state.

“The recent and forecasted acceleration in home prices is a good and bad thing at the same time. Higher prices and a lack of affordable homes are two of the most challenging issues in housing today, and every buyer, seller and industry participant is being impacted.
