Danville Home Prices Rise

U.S. single-family home prices rose for the sixth month in a row. The S&P/Case Sheller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas showed an increase of 0.4% in July which is up 4.6 percent over last year. This was the largest home-price increase seen year-after-year since July 2006. According to Trulia, the average listing price of a home for sale in Danville as of October 3rd, 2012 was $1,190,062.This is an increase of 2.5% compared to the week prior. The average price per square foot in Danville is $351 which is an increase of 10.7% over last year.

Nearly six years after the housing collapse, many economists believe that the housing market has finally turned the corner. The sale of previously occupied homes jumped to a high that we have not seen since May of 2010. The number of home re-sales and the breaking of ground on new properties rose for the month of August. David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at Standard & Poor's, said in a statement, “All in all, we are more optimistic about housing. Upbeat trends continue.” The trend in gains in the housing market is headed in the right direction, but there is still a long ways to go until a full recovery can be considered.
