National home prices increased 8.2% from November 2019 to November of 2020. 



National home prices increased 8.2% year over year in November 2020, according to the latest CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI®) Report. The November 2020 HPI gain was up from the November 2019 gain of 3.7% and was the highest year-over-year gain since March 2014.  Meanwhile, the availability of for-sale homes has dwindled as demand increased and LOW INVENTORY persists due to coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks continuing across the country, which has delayed some sellers from putting their homes on the market.

Here are the top 5 states in both categories with the highest and lowest HOME PRICE APPRECIATION (HPI) through November of 2020.
