Financial News: U.S. Home Price Growth Accelerates More Than Expected

U.S. Home Price Growth Accelerates More Than Expected In September

11/28/2017 - 09:21:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - Home price growth in major U.S. metropolitan areas accelerated by more than expected in the month of September, according to a report released by Standard & Poor's on Tuesday.

The report said the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-City Composite Home Price Index climbed 6.2 percent year-over-year in September compared to the 5.8 percent growth seen in August. Economists had expected the pace of growth to accelerate to 6.1 percent.

Standard & Poor's said Seattle, Las Vegas, and San Diego reported the highest year-over-year gains among the 20 cities.

"Most economic indicators suggest that home prices can see further gains," said David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices.

He added, "One dark cloud for housing is affordability - rising prices mean that some people will be squeezed out of the market."

The 20-city home price index saw a monthly increase of 0.4 percent in September after rising by 0.5 percent in August.

On a seasonally adjusted basis, the index climbed by 0.7 percent in September, matching the increase seen in the previous month.
