Rise of Home Prices
Posted on February 28, 2014
While the real estate market might be off to an overall chilly start, there is good news for anyone seeking to sell a Northwest Florida home in the near future. Home prices rose 11.3% in 2013!
The real estate market, specifically home prices, have been slow to recover after the housing crash. 2013, however, marked the first year of significant recovery and growth, especially where mortgage rates and home prices are concerned.
Nationally, real estate has been off to a slow start for 2014. If this has you worried consider the rate of growth within the second quarter of last year. The spring of 2013 saw home prices jump 7.2%! Improved weather and the desire to move before the heat of summer could play a key role in the real estate shopping patterns of buyers.
