The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has released its annual home price index for 2018, which found that prices are going up at a faster rate in 2018 than in previous years.
NAHB, the association’s trade group, said that prices for single-family homes are up 7.7 percent over last year, while prices for two-family houses are up 11.5 percent.
The index is based on sales price data from Zillow and CoreLogic.
The median price for a two-bedroom home in the U.S. last year was $1,936, and the median price of a four-bedroom house was $2,039.
The average price for one-bedroom homes was $4,543.
The NAHBC said it expects prices to increase in 2019.
The index is one of several that are expected to be released in the coming months, as the housing market is expected to rebound.
Last year, NAHMB’s index of home prices climbed 1.4 percent over the year, according to the association.
In 2018, NAMB’s index is expected, as many new buyers enter the market, but prices remain higher than last year.
NAMB said that the index’s latest price increases have been driven by the strong dollar and higher energy prices, which are contributing to higher prices.
NAMC’s index, which measures prices for homes, was up 0.3 percent in 2018, compared to a 1.2 percent increase in 2017.
Namib’s index was up 2.4% over 2017, but the index is not based on the actual value of the home.
The data is based primarily on the average price of existing homes and new construction.
In 2018 NAMBC expects home prices to continue to rise at a rate of 7.1 percent, which is significantly faster than NAMN’s index.
Home prices are expected increase 7.9 percent over 2019.
NAB’s index for 2019 is also expected to show higher prices, and will be up 3.4 percentage points.
“It’s going to be a long, hot summer, which will lead to higher costs for consumers,” said Mike Wozniak, senior vice president of mortgage finance at NAMIB.
While NAMs annual index is showing prices up, NAB expects prices will continue to increase.
Woznik added that NAB is looking to reduce the number of people moving into the market as prices continue to climb.
With prices up across the board, it is expected that many more people will move into the housing industry as the economy continues to strengthen.
For the second year in a row, the average number of listings for homes in the S&P 500 index was down, to 1,982.3, the lowest level in at least five years.
The number of homes listed for sale was up 1.3 percentage points, to 2,064.5.
The S&P 500 is up 5.9 percentage points over the same time period last year and has now gained nearly 5.5 points.
