In select cities, real estate turns a corner

Observation:  According to a story from today’s Dallas Morning News, housing prices have shown a year-over-year increase in seven cities, including Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis and Phoenix.  Click here to see the full story.

Implications:   The number of cities listed is not long… but the importance of this segment is huge.  Confidence in home prices is a strong anchor for consumer sentiment.  It’s good to see that, even if only in several major markets, prices are starting to find their way back up.  Here’s to more cities following soon.
