The S&P/Case-Shiller 20-City composite index showed that home prices rose 5.7% in January in line with expectations. Zillow chief economist Svenja Gudell noted that lower-income buyers are having a harder time with the limited inventory. And despite limited economic growth, job opportunities are rising which should keep the housing market stable and healthy. The top cities for home price appreciation was Portland, Oregon (+11.8%), Seattle, Washington (+10.7%) and San Francisco, California (+10.5%).
