Owners.com Identifies Top Growth Markets for Home Prices

Data Reveals Double Digit Price Increases in Four Markets

LUXEMBOURG--(Marketwired - December 02, 2015) - Owners.com, a top ten national brokerage and a leading marketplace for self-directed real estate, today released data that ranks 25 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) by home price changes from August-September 2014 compared with August-September 2015.

Mid-sized cities experienced some of the largest price increases in the country, while some larger markets, like New York, saw price reductions. The data revealed that Denver, CO showed a median three-bedroom single-family home price increase of 11.9 percent -- the highest among the entire group. Orlando, FL and Miami, FL followed closely behind with increases of 11.6 percent and 11 percent, respectively. The New York metropolitan area -- reaching across state lines into New Jersey and Pennsylvania -- experienced a significant slump, with median prices of three-bedroom single-family homes dropping 6.7 percent.

"This data suggests that secondary markets such as Orlando and Denver have benefited greatly from the overall housing recovery with price gains significantly above larger markets," said Steve Udelson, President of the Owners.com® business. "With the spring real estate season around the corner, consumers who are planning to be in the market next year will want to keep an eye on these markets to make savvy buying or selling decisions."

Methodology:

The Top 25 ranking was produced using metropolitan statistical areas, a standardized definition for identifying city centers and immediate suburban areas. The list is comprised of the MSAs with the highest existing single-family home transaction volumes in September 2015 where price data and bedroom counts were available. Transaction volumes and three-bedroom single-family median home price data from August and September 2014 and 2015 were used to calculate the year-over-year changes. Only homes above $50,000 were included in the transaction volume data set. Data was provided by an Altisource business unit, RentRange®, a data provider to the financial services and real estate industries, using public record data sources from tax assessors and county clerk/recorders' offices.
