Meanwhile, on a quarterly basis, prices increased 3.6 percent from the third quarter in 2011.”Home prices rose in the third quarter, marking the sixth consecutive month of increasing prices,” said index committee chairman David Blitzer.As property values increase, this development could give current owners the incentive they need to list their home on the market, which could give prospective buyers additional options to make the transition to homeownership.While these trends slowly take hold on a national level, Houston real estate experienced rising prices and increased sales for much of 2012. In October, the average price of a single-family home appreciated 8.3 percent to $223,366, which is well above the national average, according to the Houston Association of Realtors.?
