Prices Appreciate: Top 5 Markets

    

Stabilizing is a word being thrown about to describe the current housing market. CoreLogic has found the following five states to go beyond ‘stabilization’ to price appreciation:

  • South Dakota: 5.7%
  • North Dakota: 4%
  • West Virginia: 4%
  • Montana: 3.6%
  • Michigan: 3%

The average price change recently recorded was a drop of 3.1% as compared to the above five markets and their price increases. In fact, Illinois’s market was down 8.7%. Blessed to be a Montanan—always.
