Another home price report defying the odds

By Jann Swanson | Mortgage News Daily

Home prices measured by CoreLogic’s Home Price Index (HPI) posted their largest gains in nearly a year in March, continuing to confound the company’s own forecasts. The HPI, which includes sales of distressed properties, was up 1.6 percent from February to March. This was the biggest monthly jump since the index gained 1.8 percent from March to April 2016. The January to February increase was 1.0 percent.
