The housing market is improving. But don’t take our word for it. CoreLogic, Standard & Poor’s, FHFA and the NAHB all closely monitor a diverse array of housing data and indicators. At some point over the past six months, every single one of these indices has either reached a multi-year high or has shown several consecutive months of improvements. Does that mean every home in every neighborhood in every city across America is worth more today than it was a year ago? Of course not. But you’d be surprised just how robust this recovery is. Go ahead, dig into the numbers and see for yourself.
