US real estate prices rose another 2% in May to begin June 2013 up 10% over last year at this time, and up 24% since the botton of the market March 18, 2011.

Home prices will peak for the year at the end of June and begin a normal, seasonal stabilization and decline for the second half of the year. Year over year, the data looks very clear that home prices will end the year up 10-12% over where they began 2013.

Rents Climbing Monthly

Rents, as measured across both single family homes and apartments, were up 0.4% in May and up 6% year-to-date. Rents and home prices are moving in tandem as household formation grows (movin’ on out after five years of staying at home with mom.)
