For Week Ending November 26, 2016

National home prices reached a record high, increasing 0.1 percent from the pre-recession peak in 2006. This height – driven by low inventory, solid demand and responsible lending practices – is much different from the previous high mark. Inflation is also a factor. Interest rates, unemployment, prices and wage trends will continue to be factors to monitor for trend analysis as we reach toward 2017.
