U.S. House Price Index Report - 2022 Q1

Published: 5/31/2022

​​​U.S. house prices rose 18.7 percent from the first quarter of 2021 to the first quarter of 2022 according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency House Price Index (FHFA HPI®). House prices were up 4.6 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. FHFA’s seasonally adjusted monthly index for March was up 1.5 percent from February.

"High appreciation rates continued across housing markets during the first quarter of 2022," said William Doerner, Ph.D., Supervisory Economist in FHFA’s Division of Research and Statistics. "Strong demand coupled with tight supply have kept prices climbing.  Through the end of March, higher mortgage rates have not yet translated into slower price gains, but new home sales have dropped during the last few months, with a significant falloff in April.​"
