Excluding distressed sales, home prices increased on a year-over-year basis by 10.8 percent in September 2013 compared to September 2012. On a month-over-month basis, excluding distressed sales, home prices increased 0.3 percent in September 2013 compared to August 2013. Distressed sales include short sales and real estate owned (REO) transactions.

The CoreLogic Pending HPI indicates that October 2013 home prices, including distressed sales, are expected to rise by 12.5 percent on a year-over-year basis from October 2012 and rise by 0.1 percent on a month-over-month basis from September 2013. Excluding distressed sales, October 2013 home prices are poised to rise 11.2 percent year over year from October 2012 and by 0.1 percent month over month from September 2013. The CoreLogic Pending HPI is a proprietary and exclusive metric that provides the most current indication of trends in home prices. It is based on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) data that measure price changes for the most recent month.

"September marked the unofficial five-year anniversary of the start of the housing crisis," said Dr. Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. "The five-year home price appreciation for all homes in the nation was 3.4 percent. While there is still room for improvement, the CoreLogic HPI is at the highest level since May 2008."

"U.S. home prices continued their ascent in September. Average home prices in nearly half the states are now within striking distance of their pre-downturn pricing peaks," said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "We are seeing a slowdown in the rate of price appreciation over the past few months from the rapid pace experienced over the first half of this year. This deceleration is natural and should help keep market fundamentals in balance over the longer-term."

Highlights as of September 2013:

  • Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were:  Nevada (+25.3 percent), California (+22.5 percent), Arizona (+14.6 percent), Georgia (+14.4 percent) and Michigan (+13.9 percent).
  • Including distressed sales, no states posted home price depreciation in the month of September.
  • Excluding distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were: Nevada (+22.4 percent), California (+18.9 percent), Utah (+13.2 percent), Arizona (+12.6 percent) and Florida (+12.6 percent).
  • Excluding distressed sales, no states posted home price depreciation in the month of September.
  • Including distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change in the national HPI (from April 2006 to September 2013) was -17.4 percent. Excluding distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change in the HPI for the same period was -13.1 percent.
  • The five states with the largest peak-to-current declines, including distressed transactions, were Nevada (-41.4 percent), Florida (-37.7 percent), Arizona (-32.1 percent), Rhode Island (-28.3 percent) and West Virginia (-26.5 percent).
  • All of the top 100 Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) measured by population showed year-over-year increases in September 2013.

*August data was revised. Revisions with public records data are standard, and to ensure accuracy, CoreLogic incorporates the newly released public data to provide updated results.
