The following metro areas had year-over-year median home price increases of 10% or more since September 2022:

  1. Los Angeles: 23.8%
  2. San Diego: 18.2%
  3. Richmond: 15%
  4. Cincinnati, Ohio: 14.6%
  5. Providence, Rhode Island and Massachusetts: 14.6%
  6. Boston: 14.1%
  7. Columbus, Ohio: 12.1%
  8. Rochester, New York: 11.4%
  9. Pittsburgh: 10.6%
  10. Chicago: 10.3%
  11. Indianapolis: 10%

California has a longstanding housing shortage — perhaps the worst in the country — so home price growth in L.A. and San Diego isn’t overly surprising, especially considering price gains in recent years. Median home prices in L.A. and San Diego have increased by 38% and 48% since January 2020, respectively, based on’s active listings data.
