The good news train continued rolling in June with the release of Trulia’s latest Price Monitor.
Asking prices in the Atlanta area rose a hefty 15.7 percent year-over-year in June, according to the latest Price Monitor from Trulia; based on listing data from its website, Trulia’s Price Monitor anticipates price growth in the industry’s other major home price indices.
Atlanta’s yearly asking price growth was good for the second best in the entire nation, and among large metro areas, none saw stronger price growth than Atlanta; additionally, Atlanta’s 4.0 percent quarterly increase was the third-best among large areas, and its asking rents rose a formidable 8.6 percent.
Nationally, however, asking prices continued to slow, with yearly and quarterly increases coming in at 8.1 and 2.6 percent, respectively; though still positive, those increases were behind June 2013’s 9.5 and 3.1 percent.
