PROPERTY WIRE: US HOME PRICES UP 6.5% YEAR ON YEAR, LATEST INDEX SHOWS

101 cristina's way.jpg-1

Home prices across the United States, including distressed sales, increased by 6.5% in June 2015 compared with the same month in 2014, according to the latest index.

It is the 40th month in a row of year on year price increases and values were also up month on month with growth of 1.7% in June compared to May, the CoreLogic home price index also shows.

Excluding distressed sales, home prices increased by 6.4% in June 2015 compared with June 2014 and increased by 1.4% month on month with only Massachusetts (-1.5 percent) and Louisiana with an annual price fall of 1.5% and 0.1% respectively.

Including distressed sales, that is short sales and real estate owned sales (REO), some 35 states were at or within 10% of their peak prices in June 2015 and 15 reached new price peaks.

The firm’s latest house price forecast indicates that home prices, including distressed sales, are projected to increase by 0.6% month on month from June 2015 to July 2015 and by 4.5% on a year on year basis from June 2015 to June 2016.

Excluding distressed sales, home prices are projected to increase by 0.5% month on month from June 2015 to July 2015 and by 4.2% year on year from June 2015 to June 2016.

The index report also shows across the country there was 4.8 months supply but the measure varied greatly across cities. In San Jose and Denver, there was only 1.6 months’ supply of homes on the market, whereas Philadelphia had a seven months’ supply and Providence had a 6.6 months’ supply.

Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic, explained that the stronger appreciation was registered in cities with limited inventory and strong homebuyer activity, such as San Jose and Denver.

According to Anand Nallathambi, president and chief executive officer of CoreLogic pent-up buying demand and affordability, together with higher consumer confidence buoyed by a more robust labour market, are a potent mix fuelling the 6.5% jump in home prices with more increases likely to come.

Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were Colorado with growth of 9.8%, Washington up 8.9%, New York up 8.3%, South Carolina up 8% and Nevada also up 8%.

Excluding distressed sales, the five states with the highest home price appreciation were Colorado up 9.3%, New York up 8.5%, Washington up 8.3%, Oregon up 8.2% and Nevada up 7.9%.

Including distressed sales, only four states experienced home price depreciation with the biggest fall of 5% in Massachusetts, while Connecticut was down 0.6%, Louisiana down 0.4% and Mississippi with a fall of 0.3.

The five states with the largest peak to current declines, including distressed transactions, were Nevada with a fall of 32.2%, Florida at 28.7%, Rhode Island at 26.5%, Arizona at 25.8% and Maryland down 21.2%.

Of the top 100 Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) measured by population, some 93 showed year on year increases while seven showed year on year declines ranging from 8% to 0.1%.

The Great Outdoors – Sotheby’s Art & Home, May 2015

The latest edition of Art & Home is here! From thoughtfully landscaped grounds to immaculately manicured gardens, what lies just outside the front door is what makes a house a home, finds Iyna Bort Caruso.

IMG_9061Art & Home—May 2015

Frederick Law Olmsted, the founder of American landscape architecture, sought to channel the “genius of a place” in his projects. He believed every habitat had a spirit of its own and accessing that quality was the most meaningful way to connect with one’s surroundings.

At their best, designed landscapes appear spontaneous – an extension of nature’s best expression. On private estates, these elegant statements go beyond initial visual impressions or curb appeal. Gardens are a full sensory experience of colors, scents and textures. They lure you inside and guide you through multiple spaces that, by turns, can be meditative, enchanting and surprising. “Gardens are very experiential and very ethereal,” says Miami-based landscape architect Raymond Jungles, who has worked throughout the Caribbean and Latin America.

In reinterpreting the environment, designers consider the site, orientation of the sun, climate and architectural style of the residence. Landscapes can also be used to camouflage flaws. For homes that lack strong aesthetic merit, “landscaping can become the dominant design element that allows residences to recede and fade into the environment,” says Jungles.

Gardens are points of personal pride and neighborhood identity. In cities like Charleston, South Carolina, where estates are known for their flourishing azaleas, oleanders, camellias, crepe myrtles and magnolias, “people spend a good deal of time outside on their porches and in their gardens,” says Daniel Ravenel of Sotheby’s International Realty in Charleston. “It’s part of our way of life.”

Even in dense urban settings, rooftop gardens, courtyards and balconies enable residents to feel connected to nature. They soften the city’s hard edges while providing an oasis of calm.

Olmsted well recognized the effect. “Gradually and silently the charm comes over us,” he said on a trip to England in 1850. “We know not exactly where or how.”
