THE TAKEAWAY: [US house prices rose 0.6 percent in December] > [Showing the recovery in housing market at a stable pace] > [USD/CAD Mixed]

Home Prices in US Climbed by 0.6 percent as expected in December, for the eleventh consecutive month, indicating that the real estate market is rebounding at a stable pace. According to a report released by Federal Housing Finance Agency today, the S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values in 20 cities increased by 0.88 percent in December from the previous month, the highest rise since July 2012. The medium forecast by economists in a survey polled by Bloomberg Newshad projected a gain of 0.65 percent.

With record-low mortgage rates and the improved outlook of US economy, demands for housing are increasing and as a consequence pushing property prices higher. Despite of new pay-roll tax, consumer spending has shown more confidence as the labor market is recovering. In addition, higher property values have added considerable wealth to households.
