The map illustrates the top states for property appreciation rates year over year.1 Property appreciation is calculated based on repeat sales of the same properties, which can avoid the problem of trying to account for price differences in homes with varying characteristics. Increasing home prices usually indicate rising demand, while decreasing prices reflect falling demand.

The national property appreciation rate increased by 5.2%, with 24 states above the nationwide average. With the exception of Rhode Island, the biggest appreciation was in the West. The top three states for appreciation were Idaho (11.1%), Nevada (11.0%) and Utah (9.3%).

Properties in Southern states appreciated at a lower rate than in the West, possibly due to more available housing inventory. The only state that showed depreciation was North Dakota, where home prices declined by 0.8%.
