Home Values Rise at Fastest Pace in 12 Years

Median home values across the nation rose 8.7 percent over the past year to $215,600, according to the April Zillow Real Estate Market Report

- Home values across the U.S. are rising at their fastest pace since June 2006.

- The median U.S. home value is $215,600, up 8.7 percent over the past year.

- Home values are rising the fastest in San Jose, Calif., Las Vegas and Seattle. San Jose home values appreciated 26 percent since last April.

- Median U.S. rent rose 2.5 percent over the past year to $1,449. California markets Sacramento and Riverside reported the greatest increases in median rent.

SEATTLE, May 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National median home values are rising at their fastest pace in 12 years, according to the April Zillow® Real Estate Market Reporti. Over the past year, home values across the country rose 8.7 percent to a median value of $215,600.

Home values have not appreciated this quickly since June 2006, right before the housing bubble bust, when they were appreciating 9 percent annually. U.S. home values are now higher than they have ever been, and home values in 21 of the 35 largest housing markets have surpassed peak value hit during the height of the housing boom over a decade ago.

"Home values are rising faster than we've seen in a very long time: The spring home shopping season has been a perfect storm of strong demand and tight supply," said Zillow senior economist Aaron Terrazas. "Sluggish new construction has exacerbated the supply situation and homes that are hitting the market, are moving very quickly once they do. Americans are also in a spending mood, boosted by recent tax cuts and rising wages. Millennials who long delayed becoming homeowners, are out in force – a shift we're also seeing in softer rent appreciation."

Home values are appreciating the fastest in San Jose, Las Vegas, and Seattle. In San Jose, home values rose 26 percent to a median of $1,263,900. In Las Vegas and Seattle, home values rose 16.5 percent and 13.6 percent, respectively.

Median rent across the nation rose 2.5 percent over the past year to a median payment of $1,449 per month. Sacramento, Calif., Riverside, Calif., and Las Vegas reported the greatest year-over-year rent appreciation among the 35 largest U.S. metros. In Sacramento and Riverside, median rent rose 7 percent and in Las Vegas, median rent rose 4.5 percent.

April ended with mortgage rates on Zillowii at 4.35 percent, after starting the month at 4.20 percent. April mortgage rates peaked toward the end of the monthiii at 4.42 percent, the highest rate since the beginning of 2013iv, and hit a month low in the first few weeks of the monthv when rates were at 4.19 percent. Zillow's real-time mortgage rates are based on thousands of custom mortgage quotes submitted daily to anonymous borrowers on the Zillow Mortgages site and reflect the most recent changes in the market.

Coach Carson posted a balanced, informative response, appreciating Suze’s admonition to be sure you have enough for a risk-free retirement. Suze enumerated a string “what can go wrong” scenarios as evidence that early retirement (on less than $10 million) leaves you vulnerable when life hands you lemons — a whole tree of lemons.

    October is living up to its infamous reputation as a volatile month for stocks with major indexes down sharply and there is likely more pain ahead for investors, according to one prominent Wall Street analyst.

After eking out gains last week, the S&P 500 (SPX) is trading below the 200 DMA of 2,768 thus far this week as stocks remain under pressure with third-quarter earnings cycle picking up pace.

    Trump’s Tax Push to Help Middle Class Could Help Top Earners Too

    It’s still unclear how Trump will propose to reduce the tax burden on middle-class Americans, but one of the most straightforward ways would be to lower rates by 10 percent for single filers making up to $82,500. U.S. income tax rates are graduated and income dollars get taxed in chunks as they move up through the brackets -- which means wealthy Americans would also get to apply the reduced rate on their first dollars of income. “A millionaire gets the same size tax cut,” said Kyle Pomerleau, an economist at the conservative Tax Foundation.
