Asking prices post biggest increase since bust began

Trulia: List prices up 2.5 percent in September from year ago

Home prices on real estate portal Trulia’s website were up 2.5 percent in September from a year ago, the largest year-over-year increase since the housing recession began, according to a monthly report from Trulia.

The increase portends that 2012 will likely see the first calendar-year list price increase since 2006, said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s chief economist.
