South Florida saw steady home price increases in November as the tri-county region continued to outperform most of the country, a national housing index shows.
Prices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties rose 6.1 percent from a year earlier, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller index, which tracks 20 metro areas nationwide. U.S. prices jumped 5.6 percent.
The two largest price gains were in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle led all areas for the third consecutive month, with prices rising there by 10.4 percent. Portland, Ore., was second at 10.1 percent.
