WASHINGTON — Home price appreciation in the Washington market continues to slow, with the latest report showing median prices up less than 1 percent from a year ago.
CoreLogic Inc.’s April data found the median price in the Washington metro was up 0.8 percent from April 2015. Compare that to an annual gain of 10.6 percent in Denver, and 6.4 percent in San Francisco.
Nationwide, the average annual gain in April was 6.2 percent.
“The rate recovery does vary somewhat based on local conditions,” said CoreLogic CEO Anand Nallathambi.
“Price increases in a significant number of states in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions lagged the national average, with Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey and Vermont registering gains of 1 percent or less over the past year.”
Maryland’s annual price increase in April was just 0.3 percent. In Virginia, it was 1.4 percent.
Median prices in the District itself were up 3.1 percent from April 2015.
CoreLogic’s Home Price Index Forecast calls for home prices nationwide to increase by an average of 5.3 percent by April of 2017.
