September saw the largest year-over-year increase in home prices since July 2006 and was the seventh consecutive month that showed a year-over-year increase, according to data released Tuesday by CoreLogic. Nationwide, home prices were up 5 percent over September 2011, according to the business analytics firm's numbers. That increase includes distressed sales and is derived from a "repeat-sales index that tracks increases and decreases in sales prices for the same homes over time, including single-family attached and single-family detached homes," according to a statement from CoreLogic.

U.S. home prices last month saw their largest jump in more than six years, but the gains in metro Baltimore were much smaller than the national average. Nationwide, home prices increased 8.3 percent in December compared with a year earlier. In Greater Baltimore, the increase was 1.8 percent, according to a report released Tuesday by real estate data firm CoreLogic. The national increase was the largest since May 2006, according to CoreLogic's figures, and December marked the tenth consecutive month of U.S. home price increases.

Three years after the official end of the longest recession since World War II, nearly one in five mortgaged homes in the Baltimore metro area was still underwater, according to r eal estate data firm  CoreLogic. In the second quarter of this year, 18.3 percent of Baltimore-area residences with a mortgage -   116,301  properties - were worth less than what their owners owed, the firm announced this month. Still, that's an improvement. In the first quarter of 2012, 19.7 percent of homes in and around Baltimore were upside-down, the number-crunching company said.

More than 10,000 homes in the metro Baltimore region -- valued at a total of $3.5 billion -- are at risk for potential storm-surge damage, according to housing market analysis firm  CoreLogic.  "Hurricane-driven storm-surge flooding can cause significant property damage when high winds and low pressure causes water to amass inside the storm, releasing a powerful rush over land when the hurricane moves on shore," said CoreLogic, which made...

One in four Maryland borrowers owed more on his or her home than it was worth at the start of this year, according to CoreLogic's newest estimates -- a lot of people, but not quite as many as the company thinks were underwater last year. The real estate data firm put the tally at just over 335,000, down from 365,000 in the final three months of last year and the lowest figure since the summer of 2010. Maryland ranked 9th among states with the highest levels of negative equity.

The sale price of homes in the Baltimore metro region during August were 1.2 percent higher than a year earlier, according to data released Tuesday by housing market analysis firm CoreLogic. Much of the upward pressure on prices was due to buyers paying higher prices for distressed properties ­ - foreclosures and short sales. Leaving out distressed sales, home prices increased just 0.7 percent in August when compared with August 2011, CoreLogic concluded. The Baltimore region's home price performance in August was weaker than the nation as a whole, the data showed.

Home mortgage foreclosure rates in the Baltimore area were up in August over the same month last year, according to recent data from housing market analysis firm CoreLogic. Among outstanding mortgage loans in the Greater Baltimore area, 4.24 percent were in some stage of the foreclosure process in August, CoreLogic said. That's an increase of 1.58 percentage points when compared to August 2011, when the Baltimore region's foreclosure rate was 2.66 percent. Maryland as a whole had a similar jump in the foreclosure rate, from 2.83 percent in August 2011 to 4.4 percent two months ago. The national foreclosure rate in August was 3.35 percent, down from 3.46 percent in August 2011, CoreLogic said.

The number of U.S. homes lost to foreclosure in September was half the number in September 2010 - the peak month of the foreclosure crisis, according to data released Wednesday. In September, there were 57,000 completed foreclosures across the country, real estate industry analysis firm CoreLogic reported in its monthly National Foreclosure Report. A year prior, in September 2011, there were 83,000 completed foreclosures. "Increasingly improving market conditions and industry and government policy are allowing distressed homeowners to pursue refinancing, loan modifications or short sales rather than foreclosures,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic, in a statement.

A recent analysis offers some good news, at least in the short-term, for those individuals (like me!) who are trying to sell their homes -- outside of Maryland, at least. The rate of those who are seriously behind on their mortgage payments -- a leading warning sign of pending foreclosures -- was a bit better in March at 7 percent nationwide, an analysis by real estate data firm CoreLogic. The rate is down from 7.5 percent in March 2011 and at its lowest point since July 2009. Maryland, though, inched upward from 7.8 percent to 8 percent.

More homeowners are slipping below the waterline. About 125,000 homes in the Baltimore region were worth less than what their owners owed on the mortgages at the end of last year, up from nearly 120,000 last summer, according to estimates from real estate data firm CoreLogic. All told, close to 20 percent of borrowers are upside down on their mortgages, the company said. The underwater phenomenon grew nationally as well , engulfing an additional 400,000 homes and inching up to nearly 23 percent of all residential properties with a mortgage.
