Housing Market Back on “Very Sound Footing”
U.S. single-family home values appreciated 6% in July from a year earlier to $161,000.

Zillow reported that 289 of the 393 metros (or 73.5%) posted price increases in July over the previous month and 303 (77.1%) registered an increase over the prior year.
