Housing Price Growth Breaks Record, but Likely to Slow

A new report has found that the explosive growth rate in housing prices has reached historic levels, with a year-over-year gain of eighteen percent in July coming in as the highest 12-month expand since that data index was d in one thousand nine hundred seventy-sixth.

After extremely Ltd supply and superheated demand fueled these increases, the recent report by analytics company CoreLogic anticipated significantly slower growth over the following year, projecting 2.7 percent growth in residence prices between July of two thousand twenty-one and July of two thousand twenty-two.

“July’s annual home price growth was the most that we have ever seen in the 45-year history of the CoreLogic Home Price Index,” said Frank Nothaft, CoreLogic chief economist, in a statement. “This price gain has far exceeded income growth and eroded affordability. In the coming months, this will temper demand and lead to a slowing in price growth.”

The takeaway:

A continued lack of housing supply, particularly affordable stock, will severely limit home-price appreciation, according to the report, as prices outstrip incomes. Right now, though, prices are still rising at a rapid rate, jumping 1.8 percent between June and July of this year—though the report predicts a more modest expand of 0.7 percent month-to-month growth in the coming year.

“Home-price appreciation continues to escalate as millennials enter their prime home-buying years, renters look to escape skyrocketing rents and deep-pocketed investors drive demand,” said CoreLogic CEO Frank Martell in a statement.

Single-family homes saw nearly double the appreciation of condos or other attached properties, though at an 11.6% increase, condos still saw their largest single year jump since 2006.

The report also delineated price growth relative to the median home sales price, and found lower-priced houses saw significantly more accelerated growth than higher-priced homes. The lowest priced homes grew by 22.1%, while the highest tier grew 19.1%.
