For Week Ending August 22, 2015

In numerous metropolitan markets across the country, the S&P/Case–Shiller Home Price Index has indicated that home prices have risen during summer, confirming the trends evident by examining MLS data. That’s no surprise from month to month, but it’s also true in year-over-year comparisons. As ideal summer weather diverges toward autumn, we will begin to see some seasonal relaxation, but the market should still look positive when compared to last year. It’s been another good year for residential real estate, and that is expected to continue.
