Report Shows Home Price Rebound in Nearly 25 Percent of Key Markets

Property data through July shows home prices have rebounded completely in more than one-fifth of the nation's top regional markets, according to a report from ""Homes.com"":http://www.homes.com/.


According to the site's latest report, 22 of the top 100 markets in the United States reported price increases of more than 100 percent from their respective troughs, up from 19 the month prior.

Marketing analyst Nicole Selvaggi explained that most of the markets that have come back completely ""never suffered the significant numbers of foreclosures and short [COLUMN_BREAK]

sales that characterized the housing economy from 2007 to 2012,"" and seven of the top 20 have benefited greatly from energy development from oil, gas, shale, or coal.

""As a result, these markets experienced a very different housing scenario, with lower peaks and higher troughs than other markets in the same region,"" Selvaggi said.

At this point, 44 markets have seen a rebound of at least 50 percent, up from 41 in the last report.

In addition to the rebound, all 100 of the markets tracked in the Homes.com Local Market Index Report reported increases in home prices on both a monthly and yearly basis.

In terms of yearly growth, many of California's most highly populated markets (including the Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco areas) were among the top metros, with five additional smaller cities making the top list.

""Rising home prices in California's coastal areas (Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco), could be 'pushing buyers inland to more affordable Riverside and San Bernardino counties,'"" Selvaggi said, quoting an analysis from John Burns, CEO of ""John Burns Real Estate Consulting"":http://www.realestateconsulting.com/.
