A new report from CoreLogic shows Valley home prices rose in August, both year over year and month over month.


Home prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased year over year by 6.2 percent in August compared with August 2015 and increased month over month by 1.1 percent in August compared with July 2016, according to CoreLogic.

In Fresno Valley, home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 4.8 percent in August compared with August 2015. And on a month-over-month basis, home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 1.2 percent in August compared with July 2016.

In Madera, home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 8.6 percent in August compared with August 2015. And on a month-over-month basis, Madera County home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 2.9 percent in August compared with July 2016.

In the Hanford-Corcoran area, home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 5.1 percent in August compared with August 2015. On a month-over-month basis, Kings County home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 0.6 percent in August compared with July 2016.

In Visalia-Porterville, home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 5.7 percent in August compared with August 2015. On a month-over-month basis, Tulare County home prices, including distressed sales, increased by 0.5 percent in August compared with July 2016.

The CoreLogic HPI Forecast indicates that home prices will increase by 5.3 percent on a year-over-year basis from August 2016 to August 2017, and on a month-over-month basis home prices are expected to increase by 0.4 percent from August 2016 to September 2016.

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.

“Valley Home prices are now just 6 percent below the nominal peak reached in April 2006,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. “With prices forecasted to increase by 5 percent over the next year, prices will be back to their peak level in 2017.”

“Housing values continue to rise briskly on stronger fundamental and investor-fueled demand, as well as lack of adequate supply,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “This continued price appreciation is contributing to a growing affordability crisis in many markets around the country.”
