Home prices surged 11.9% in annual terms in February, which was stronger than January’s 11.1% increase and marked the quickest pace of growth since March 2014. Gains were the strongest in Phoenix for 20 straight months, followed by San Diego and Seattle. Overall, all 20 cities registered price growth in February.

Our panel expects home prices to increase 10.0% in 2021, which is up 0.9 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2022, panelists see home prices rising 5.5%.
