Nationwide, the U.S. housing market is showing signs of recovery. Home prices are rising as demand for homes outweighs existing home supplies in many metropolitan regions.

In an effort to measure the changes, CNN Money has named the 10 U.S. housing markets in which home prices may rise the fastest.

parkland homes for sale: Simple Real Estate Definitions : Home Inspection - 06/06/12 12:09 AM
When you preview homes as a home buyer, you can get a good feel for the home's visible traits -- its finishes, its room counts, and its landscaping, for example. What you can't get a feel for, though, is the home's "bones". It's for this reason that real estate professionals recommend that you have a property formally inspected immediately after going into contract for it. A home inspection is a thorough, top-to-bottom check-up of a property's structure and systems. It is not the same as a home appraisal, which is a valuation of the property. By contrast, home inspections are an … (0 comments)

The IMI's three collected data series are : Employment Growth (as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics) Home Price Growth (as published by Freddie Mac) Single-Family Housing Growth (as published by the … (0 comments)
