The home price index was up 12.2% compared to a year ago according to S&P/Case-Shiller. This is the biggest gain in one year since 2006. This recovery has also created a home renovation boom and for contractors that’s great news! New home buyers however are not that lucky as mortgage closing costs are up 6% this year. All in all the housing market is improving and homeowners are more likely to make necessary home repairs and improvements to increase the value of their home.
