U.S. Home Values Are Rising at Their Fastest Pace in 12 Years

National home values have increased 8.7 percent since last April to a median value of $215,600, according to Zillow. Newly released data from the Federal Housing Finance Agency confirm the widespread gains seen by Zillow as home prices rose in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in the first quarter of 2018 compared to a year earlier. The FHFA report shows first-quarter home prices rose 6.9 percent from a year earlier.
