Market Update: Home Prices Continue to Rise in April

The Case-Shiller report showed a 4.7% increase in home prices annually in April.

Bill Banfield, Quicken Loans Executive Vice President of Capital Markets, offers the following insight on the report:

“Home prices were well supported in April thanks to low interest rates and a lack of choices in what to buy. Pent up demand from those anxious to shop for a new home while stuck in theirs should continue this momentum as shown by the surge in purchase mortgage applications in recent weeks.”
