Case-Shiller: Seattle Home Values up 8.2% in 2012

The December data is in, and Seattle home values are up 8.2% from December 2011, the largest one-year gain since 2006.

Nationwide, home values were up 6.8%.

The recovery in home prices reflects a general rebound in the construction sector.

Locally, the Seattle market is very hot, with low inventory and a pool of buyers arming themselves with pre-inspections to fight bidding wars, as multiple-offer situations have become commonplace again.
