The FNC Residential Price Index (RPI) for January was released March 15, showing that home prices were on a seasonal decline over December but were on the rise compared with the same month last year. The RPI was down 0.3 percent from December and up 6.4 percent from December 2015.

“January is typically a slow month for housing activity, and month-over-month fluctuations in home prices tend to reflect that,” said Yanling Mayer, FNC‘s housing economist and Director of Research.

“In San Francisco, for example, home prices dropped 2.0 percent in January, which was largely driven by a sales shift toward lower-priced and smaller homes, thus better viewed as noise in the data rather than a meaningful decline in price.”

San Diego led the pack in month-over-month price increases at 2.6 percent, which was followed by Orlando at 2.1 percent and Denver at 1.8 percent. Denver is the only city that ranked in the top three for both monthly and annual increases, posting a 13.4 percent year-over-year increase.

Portland reigns supreme on annual increases, posting a 14.8 percent year-over-year increase. Sacramento had a 13.8 percent increase in January.

The Chicago real estate market showed no signs of changing on a monthly basis. The FNC RPI reported a 0.0 percent month-over-month decrease.

Despite the lack of change, on an annual basis the metro was slightly lower on the list of top markets. The year-over-year increase was 7.6 percent.
