Clear Capital: Home Prices in Western US up 10 percent, year over year


Clear Capital released its home price data through November today. According to the report, the West "continued to lead the recovery."
In the West, home prices were up year over year and quarter over quarter.
The seasonal effects of winter also started to take hold in three out of four regions. A pull back in growth at similar magnitudes was echoed in the West, South, and Northeast, with quarterly gains of 2.0%, 0.8%, and 0.3%, respectively. 
The Midwest was the only region to hold the momentum of quarterly growth over October. However, at just 0.9%, the region is in line with the level of growth across the regions and at the national level. 
The West continued to lead the recovery, yet with softer yearly gains of 10.3% in November, over October's yearly growth of 11.4%. The region continued to make progress in that REO saturation declined to just 17.8%. Since the peak in 2009, REO saturation has fallen by more than half.
