Palm Beach County’s ever-volatile housing market has cooled a bit, according to a report released Tuesday by CoreLogic.
Palm Beach County home prices rose 6.3 percent from December 2015 to December 2016, CoreLogic said. Nationally, prices rose 7.2 percent for the year, while Florida values were up 7.4 percent.
During the rebound from the housing crash, Palm Beach County price growth routinely outpaced the nation’s. In 2014, for instance, Palm Beach County prices rose more than 8 percent, compared to a national pace of 5.7 percent, CoreLogic found.
For the coming year, CoreLogic forecasts 4.7 percent appreciation nationally.
