The MarketPulse Report for July is available for free download. There are several significant findings in the report.

  • Home prices are up in many markets as high negative equity shares keep many sellers off the market and demand for distressed properties remains high.
  • The lower end of the home price tier is rebounding at more than three times the rate of the upper end driven by distressed sales.
  • The Home Price Index (HPI), including distressed sales, posted the largest year-over-year spring price gain in the last 25 years.
  • Estimates show that refinancing accounted for 70 percent of the total mortgage originations market over the past 12 months.
