If you’ve been planning on improving your roofing in Winston-Salem NC and the surrounding areas, here’s some good news: house prices are up. This means your planned improvement can bring more value to your property since prices are on an upswing.
Result of Improving Housing Market
In a study conducted by CoreLogic, Inc., home prices were found to have increased by 0.6% in October alone. If you include figures for distressed sales which have something to do with short and real estate owned transactions, the gain was at 0.5%.The overall yearly increase in house pricing was around 5% to 6% in 2014.
You may remember how house prices plummeted just a few years ago. According to CoreLogic, prices are rising now because the housing market is recovering. This slow but steady recovery seems largely to be a result of improved employment, better buyer and seller confidence, and even increased investor demand.
If the market continues in this manner, prices are expected to look even better in 2015. “[By 2015], home prices in over half the country will have reached or surpassed levels last seen at the height of the housing bubble,” said CoreLogic CEO Anand Nallathambi.
