Home prices rose 0.9% in June from May and 5.1% since June 2014, according to the new home price report from Black Knight Financial Services.

The Black Knight HPI combines the company’s extensive property and loan-level databases to produce a repeat sales analysis of home prices as of their transaction dates every month for each of more than 18,500 U.S. ZIP codes.

This puts national home prices up 4.9% since the start of the year and up over 26% since the bottom of the market at the start of 2012.
At $252,000, the national level HPI is now just 5.8% off its June 2006 peak of $268,000.

Michigan led gains among the states, seeing 1.9% month-over-month appreciation, followed by Colorado at 1.4%.
In a sign of the month’s overall positivity, even the lowest performing state – West Virginia – registered flat, rather than negative, movement in June.

Among all the nation’s metros tracked by the Black Knight HPI, Reno, NV saw the greatest monthly appreciation at 2.6%.
