As a result, national home prices are up 27% since the bottom of the market at the start of 2012 and are just 5.3% off the June 2006 peak.

The Black Knight HPI utilizes repeat sales data from the nation’s largest public records data set, as well as its “market-leading, loan-level mortgage performance data, to produce one of the most complete and accurate measures of home prices available for both disclosure and non-disclosure states.”

Notably, New York led gains among the states for the fifth straight month, seeing 1.2% month-over-month appreciation, the report said.

The state accounted for five of the top 10 best performing in November, with NYC leading at 1% month-over-month growth.
