- “What a difference a year makes. In 2012, prices rose in 82 of the 100 largest metros, compared with just 12 metros seeing price increases in 2011,” said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s Chief Economist. “The 2012 price turnaround was strongest in the West and Southwest, where steady job growth and vanishing inventories lifted home prices by more than 10 percent in many markets.”
- “The housing market enters 2013 with a running start,” said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s Chief Economist. “Price gains picked up steam in 2012, starting with modest increases early in the year and accelerating in the third and fourth quarter. In 2013, rising prices will encourage more new construction and some homeowners to sell, which will help alleviate the current inventory shortage.”
