Salt Lake home prices have increased nearly 47 percent over the past five years, and more than 371 percent since 1991, according to a recent report by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Nationwide, home prices have increased 32.81 percent over the same five-year period. Over the past year, home prices across Utah increased 9.80 percent, the third highest house-price appreciation of all states, the report said The FHFA House Price Index (HPI) is a broad measure of the movement of single-family house prices. The HPI is a weighted, repeat-sales index, meaning that it measures average price changes in repeat sales or refinancings on the same properties. (Courtesy of Salt Lake Board of Realtors)
