FHFA: Home prices rise at slowest pace in last four years

Home prices up 6.5% from Q2 2017

Home prices slightly increased in the second quarter of 2018, rising only 1.1% but still up 6.5% from the same quarter last year.

Home prices increased in June, rising only 0.2% from May, according to the latest monthly House Price Index from the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

The FHFA monthly HPI is calculated using home sales price information from mortgages sold to, or guaranteed by, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Because of this, the selection excludes high-end homes bought with jumbo loans or cash sales.

Supervisory Economist William Doerner said although home prices rose in the second quarter, it was at a much slower pace than previously recorded in the past four years.f

“Mortgage rates have increased by more than half a percentage point over the first six months of the year,” Doerner said. “Rates are still inexpensive from a historical standpoint, but their bump-up appears to have gently pressed the brakes on house price increases.”

Nationally, home prices in all 50 states and the District of Columbia increased since the second quarter last year. 

The states with the largest gains were Nevada at 17%, Idaho at 13%, District of Columbia at 11.8%, Utah at 11.3% and Washington at 11%.

The states that showed the least amount of annual appreciation are North Dakota at 2.1%, Louisiana at 2.3%, West Virginia at 2.3%, Connecticut at 2.4% and Alaska at 2.6%.

According to FHFA, across the nine census divisions, the Mountain division saw the strongest appreciation growth, climbing 9.5% between in the last year and increasing 1.9% in Q2 2018.

The Pacific division saw an increase of only 0.6% in Q2 of 2018, which is its slowest quarterly increase since 2011.

Notably, West South Central division saw the weakest annual house appreciation of all divisions, increasing only 5% between the second quarter of 2017 and 2018.
