Home Value Tracker - Home Value Changes by Metro Area - 3rd Quarter 2021

In the third quarter of 2021, some of the nation's smallest metropolitan areas saw some of the largest increases in home values.

December 8, 2021 - 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, Home Value Tracker 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 references. 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 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 third quarter of 2021, six of the metro areas with the fastest year-over-year increases in value were located in Idaho, with gains ranging as high as nearly 35%. Conversely, four of the ten markets with the smallest annual increases were located in Louisiana, and the smallest annual increase of just 1.12% was seen in the Odessa, TX metro area.
