U.S. House Price Index Report - 2021 Q4369782/22/2022 5:00:00 AM<p>U.S. house prices rose 17.5 percent from the fourth quarter of 2020 to the fourth quarter of 2021 according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency House Price Index (FHFA HPI®). House prices were up 3.3 percent compared to the third quarter of 2021. FHFA’s seasonally adjusted monthly index for December was up 1.2 percent from November. </p><p> &quot;House prices continued to climb but not as rapidly during the final quarter of 2021 as in earlier quarters,&quot; said William Doerner, Ph.D., Supervisory Economist in FHFA’s Division of Research and Statistics. &quot;Housing trends over the past year have created challenges. The quick house price gains may be counterbalanced as mortgage rates increase. However, more expensive housing has elevated affordability to become a broader concern as available supply remains limited.&quot; </p><p><a href="/Media/PublicAffairs/Pages/US-House-Prices-Rise-17pt5-Percent-over-the-Last-Year-Up-3pt3-Percent-from-the-Third-Quarter.aspx">Related News Release</a></p>2/23/2022 4:34:31 PMHome / About FHFA / Reports / U.S. House Price Index Report - 2021 Q4 House Price Index 3664https://www.fhfa.gov/AboutUs/Reports/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspxhtmlFalseaspx
