Yesterday’s market news:

CoreLogic’s second-quarter Market Condition Indicators report:

  • With home prices rising steadily since 2013, homes have become less affordable for some buyers — and, therefore, less sustainable, says CoreLogic in its Market Condition Indicators report for the second quarter.
  • As home prices have continued to rise, the gap between home prices and sustainable values has narrowed to 3.6 percent below the long-run sustainable level — and could shrink even further to 1.5 percent by 2017, according to CoreLogic’s forecast.
  • The trend is especially prevalent in Texas, where home prices in five local markets are well above their historical peak levels.
