US Home Prices Rise

According to Bloomberg, home prices rose in May by the most since 2006.  The Bloomberg article states:

“The S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values climbed 12.2 percent from May 2012, the biggest 12-month gain since March 2006, after advancing 12.1 percent a month earlier, a report showed today in New York. The median projection of 31 economists surveyed by Bloomberg called for a 12.4 percent advance.”

US Housing MarketRiseGood news for housing prices often translates to good news for other sectors in the economy. A strong housing market can lead to better times not only for Realtors©,   home builders,  and tradesman, the increase in the value of ones own home can lead to a sense of security that may prompt us to consider other purchases; perhaps  luxury items such as recreational vehicles, jewelry, or a dream vacation.

They say  “a rising tide lifts all boats.”  There isn’t much that can raise the tide in our economy like rising home prices can.
