The first quarter of 2022 saw some impressive home value appreciation. All markets in the top ten for home value gains sported year-over-year increases of not less than 31%

June 8, 2022 - HSH.com releases today an updated Home Value Tracker, the firm's quarterly analysis of changing home values in the nation’s top 400 metropolitan housing markets. Developed by HSH, a premiere consumer destination for mortgage information and rate shopping since 1979, the HVT reveals the 10 metropolitan areas with the fastest annual home price increases and the 10 with the smallest annual gains.

The latest evaluation examines home value changes in more than 400 of the most populous metropolitan areas. The content shows value changes from the previous quarter, two quarters ago and over the last year as well as three- and five-year reference points. A home value lookup tool allows users to see their local market's changes over these fixed time points.

HSH.com’s Home Value Tracker uses the Federal Housing Finance Agency's (FHFA) Home Price Index for insight on changes to housing market values. HVT is based on an "all transactions" index involving conforming, conventional mortgages purchased or securitized by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and includes both purchase and refinance transactions. The data does not include property transactions backed by FHA, VA, USDA or private-market non-conforming (i.e. jumbo) mortgages.

In the first quarter of 2022, five of the metro areas with the fastest year-over-year increases in value were located in Florida, with gains ranging as high as 35%. Conversely, ten markets with the most modest annual increases were scattered more broadly but still located in just six states. The smallest annual increase in any of the 400 metro areas for the first quarter of 2022 was 2.25% in the Ithaca, NY metro area.

Value changes from a sampling of major metro areas Percent value increase since 1Q21
Nashua-Manchester, NH 18.28%
Spokane-Spokane Valley, WA 25.60%
Fresno, CA 22.17%
Tucson, AZ 25.17%
Greenville-Anderson, SC 22.37%
