Real estate prices are up in many U.s. markets, but it’s up only modestly.
For example, the median price of a one-bedroom apartment in the Boston area is up about 8.4% from last year.
Meanwhile, prices in Chicago are up 2.6% from 2016.
Meanwhile in San Francisco, prices are down 3.5% from 2015.
The biggest difference is the increase in median home prices.
The median price for a two-bedroom unit in the San Francisco Bay Area has gone up 7.7% since last year, and the median home price for two- and three-bedroom units has risen just 1.7%.
So overall, median home values are up about 2.5%.
And that’s only a 1% increase.
But the median prices of a two bedroom home are actually down 1.3% from the year before, while median home sales prices are about $200,000 higher.
That’s the biggest drop in sales prices in almost five years.
But the biggest jump in median price is in the New York metropolitan area, where median home sale prices are nearly 10% higher, while home sales are up 13.1%.
That’s a 12.9% jump.
That means that the median median price in New York City is up 11.5%, and median sales prices have gone up 4.6%.
So it’s a pretty big jump.
The biggest drops are in San Diego and Los Angeles, where prices are flat or down.
And the biggest increases are in Houston, where the median sale price is up 9.5%; median home value is up 4% and median home purchase price is down 0.8%.
And so overall, the market is very strong, with median prices up 9% and home sales up 15.6%, but median prices and home values down 5% and sales up 5.4%.
So if you are looking to buy a home right now, you can do better than a year ago.
But you have to be realistic about where your home is right now.
