While seasonality is certainly making the data more difficult to interpret, there is no question that home prices continue to rise at a steady pace, though it’s worth pointing out that the slope of the year-over-year curves above was much steeper when moving up from the early-2009 bottom.

In December, the annual price change of the 20-city index reached a new recovery high of 6.8 percent, still a few percentage points back of other more timely home price gauges as buyers continue to flock to areas that were once housing bubble hot-spots. Las Vegas and Los Angeles saw the biggest price gains for the month, up 1.8 percent and 1.1 percent, respectively.
