Some very good answers here. But two things should be noted. First, countywide and even citywide prices do not tell you what prices are doing in particular neighborhoods, and neighborhood prices do not tell you exactly what to expect of a particular house. Second price trends do not always reflect what houses in a specific price range will do. Sometimes average and median prices rise because more people are buying expensive houses. Other times, they fall because there are more entry-level and downsizing buyers.

In other words, the numbers tell only part of the story.

Thanks for the question.

There are national figures as well as local figures. Here is Colorado, the increased have been substantial with specific markets have larger increases (Boulder County) and other markets having less increases (Rural Counties). so I guess there is no perfect answer - but this for sure, home prices in Colorado are on the rise.

Nationally, the average increase in the sales price of existing homes for June, 2013 versus June 2012 is of 9.6%.
You might also divide the country by regions and this will show that the average increase in the sales price of existing homes (June 2013 vs June 2012) is as follow:
Northeast ....3.7%

Furthermore, at the national level the average sales price of existing homes in 2010 was of $220,000, in 2011 was of $214,000, in 2012 was of $225,400 and for the first half of 2013 is of $237,700.

Although information provided is only for the past three years I hope you find it helpful.

Hi Cbboulder:

Not sure exactly what this question is asking. But in general, prices in Boulder were moving up before the recession and took a small hit (small compared to other places) during the recession and for a while thereafter. Generally they have been going up again this year. Recent numbers from the Boulder Area Realtor's Association are showing about a 7 percent rise in prices year-over-year.

Boulder experienced very different behaviors in different price ranges. For instance, in the high range--over a million, the sharp increases of the early decade were followed by a sharp crash with decreases of nearly 35%.

The low end, on the other hand, like homes in South Boulder under $450K, rose steadily, then slowed to zero, but very little actual loss of price was experienced. The loss might be present if a sale occurred and then the cost of that transaction was included against the value, but the full price didn't drop.

In between these two events is something that I call market compression. A weak top fell onto a strong bottom (the bottom, after all, felt increasing demand as more people left the higher end, but could still afford the low end in Boulder--make sense?) Each price range as you increase from the bottom of the Boulder market experienced a slightly higher percentage of drop.

If you want print outs of all of that data, neighborhood by neighborhood, in support of what I describe, then you will have to find someone with that kind of time. Many Realtors or Brokers won't be able to articulate this phenomena.
