The price growth momentum continued in April despite home sales slowing.
Monthly Price Growth in April Remained Double the Pre-Pandemic Pace
According to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index, home prices in the US rose +20.4% y/y in April despite slowing home sales. This year-over-year increase in home price was the strongest since CoreLogic began tracking this data some twenty years ago.
Both of CoreLogic’s 10- and 20-city composite indices remained resilient in April. The 10-city composite index surged +19.7% y/y. The 20-city composite index soared +21.2% y/y. The difference in price growth between the two composite indices was driven by smaller markets in the 20-city composite index as buyers flocked to smaller and more affordable markets, particularly in the Southeast and Florida.
Compared with the 2006 peak of both indices, the 10-city composite is +43% higher today while the 20-city composite is +51% higher.

Month-to-Month Price Growth Down Slightly in April
The non-seasonally adjusted month-to-month composite index increased +2.1% in April after jumping +2.6% in March. Even with that -.5% decline, April’s m/m increase was the second strongest in the history of this data series. CoreLogic indicated that the monthly index changes between 2015 and 2020 from March to April average approximately 1%.
Clearly, even with the uptick in mortgage interest rates and high home prices, homebuyers who can still afford to buy are doing so and, in the process of buying, are keeping the housing market competitive. According to the CoreLogic Home Price Index, home price growth will likely remain in the mid-to-high double digits through the end of this year.
