U.S. Home Prices Rise For Fourth Straight MonthAs U.S. home prices continue their monthly gains, more confidence is building that the housing market is stabilizing. While winter home sales and prices will most likely provide a short dip in statistics, fall sales have been particularly encouraging. October home sales rose over 10% this year, creating a surge in the stock market and further confidence in real estate. The sales beat the predicted estimate of a 1.4% increase, and was attributed in part to the first time home buyer tax credits. There's no guarantee that the market has stabilized, just some more data to add to the discussion.November 24 2009 - Laurelhurst00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
