A new report from CoreLogic showed that home prices in the county — including distressed properties — grew by 7.4 percent during August compared to the same month last year.
However, that’s a slight drop in appreciation compared to July, which saw home prices increase by 7.9 percent year-over-year.
The report predicts this leveling off will continue next year, with factors like higher mortgage rates and more inventory of single-family homes putting the brakes on demand.
But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, experts say. The real estate boom during 2013 and 2014 saw double-digit increase in home prices, a pace that some would say is unsustainable in the long-term.
Statewide, home prices grew 8.1 percent year-over-year during August. Nationally, the growth was by 6.9 percent, according to the report.
