Home Sales Up in Key States

Home prices, with distressed sales included, grew 12.4% from last year, posting their seventeenth consecutive monthly year-over-year price increase, CoreLogic said.

And some of the regions picking up the most steam were those hardest-hit in the midst of the recession.

The five states experiencing the most price appreciation included Nevada (prices up 27%), California (23.2%), Arizona (17%), Wyoming (16.4%) and Oregon (15%).  Nevada, California and Arizona are coming back from steep price drops after being named among some of the hardest-hit states during the recession.

As of July 2013, approximately 949,000 homes in the U.S. sat in some stage of foreclosure, compared to 1.4 million in July 2012, a year-over-year decrease of 32%.

Home prices rise for 14th straight month | Positive Real Estate News | Scoop.it

U.S. home prices including distressed sales rose for the 14th straight month in April, posting their highest year-over-year increase in more than seven years, according to analytics firm CoreLogic.


 

Nevada (up 24.6 percent), California (up 19.4 percent), Arizona (up 17.3 percent), Hawaii (up 17 percent) and Oregon (up 15.5 percent) saw the highest price gains in April, CoreLogic reported. Source: CoreLogic

Tim O'Keefe's insight:

Increasing demand for new and existing homes, coupled with low inventory, has created a virtuous cycle for price gains, most clearly seen in the Western states with year-over-year gains of 20 percent,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic.

Realtor C&D'd for Trying to Sell a House?

Realtor C&D'd for Trying to Sell a House? | Positive Real Estate News | Scoop.it
We have obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent to a single Realtor for alleged trademark violations committed by his featuring another agent's listing through his IDX. This is not the first issue of its kind in recent months.

Via Russ Bergeron
Tim O'Keefe's insight:

Horrible that someone would want to help the broker sell a property. I have always wondered on these deals what the property owner may think when the broker is seeking to limit their exposure. I know the tired argument that the broker owns the listing. But in truth doesn't the home owner? And the home owner wants the house sold, and I would assume wants as much exposure as possible. The fight for data ownership-the new frontier.More positive real estate news

After all the rest of it there still is the basic premise of who is the real publisher, and the courts have consistently found. The display does not constitue publishing. The MLS, and or the brokerage that provided the original content are most likely to be found to be the liable party. This was also discussed in The NAR response to the fair housing case mentioned in the article.
