Denver Metro Area Makes List for Highest Home Price Gains in 2014

Real Estate Agent with The Bandy Team - EXP Realty

The Western region of the U.S. continued to outpace the other three regions with an 8.7 percent price growth in home prices at the end of 2014, according to Clear Capital’s Home Data Index Market Report, which looked at data through December 2014.  But that's more than a 10 percentage point drop from the 18.9 percent growth the region saw in 2013.  The Denver-Aurora Metro area saw a year-over-year increase of 9.7% and is expected to see a 4% price gain in 2015.


The Midwest, showing strong gains recently, posted a 7.7 percent price growth year-over-year as of December 2014, while the South followed at 6 percent and the Northeast at 2.9 percent.


"Overall, 2014 was a good year, with prices up virtually across the board, though the rate of price growth has declined consistently since the year began," says Alex Villacorata, vice president of research and analytics at Clear Capital.   “As we turn the calendar, we expect this trend to continue. Nearly all markets have experienced significant turbulence over the last decade and are only now showing signs of stabilization. This stabilization is likely to persist through the first half of the year until the market's recovery strength can again be measured going into the traditional buying season.”
