The double-digit home price increases seen in Fresno County and across the state over the last year could become a thing of the past.
The median home price of an existing home in Fresno inched up in June, but has slowed considerably to only a 0.8% increase to $201,080 from $199,540 in March, according to the California Association of Realtors.
In May, Fresno’s home price increased by 3.5% to $199,540 from $192,880 in April.
Don’t worry. That’s not a bad thing, the experts say.
“Home prices are finally increasing at a healthier pace,” said Leslie Appleton-Young, the association’s vice president and chief economist. “The smallest year-over-year price gain in more than two years suggests that prices are stabilizing.”
