The year-over-year gain in the third quarter of 2017 was a slightly higher 5.6 percent.   Single-family home prices grew in 162 or 92 percent of the 177 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) tracked by NAR.  In 26 of those areas, or 16 percent, the gains were in the double digits compared to in 11 percent the prior quarter.

Testimonial

"Sara was helpful, encouraging and thorough. I had unexpectedly been notified the rental house I was in would be sold. I had no idea if I could even qualify for a mortgage. Sara was amazing. She had such an great attitude. When I wasn't hopeful, she always was. She worked so hard to find the best fit for me from a financing standpoint. She was patient with all my questions and thoroughly explained everything. There were no surprises. So very grateful to have found and worked with Sara Fuller on this loan. She is outstanding!"
