“The housing market has stabilized in many areas and homebuilding activity has strengthened in recent quarters,” noted FHFA Principal Economist Andrew Leventis in a statement today. “That said, labor market weakness and still-elevated foreclosure pipelines remain hindrances to a more robust recovery.”

Compared to Q1 2012, home prices are 6.7% higher. On a month-to-month basis, March’s numbers came in 1.3% above February’s, outstripping analysts’ estimates of a 0.9% bump . Prices also grew a seasonally adjusted 1.4% for Q4 2012.
