The good news is that the national housing market as a whole seems to be on the upswing, according to the National Association of Realtors. Most metro areas saw home price gains in 2013, with 62 out of the 129 markets that were tracked showing growth of more than 10%. Las Vegas led the pack, with the median price of an existing single-family home up 47.3%. Meanwhile, Florida boasted more of the top-performing markets than any other site. It wasn’t all wine and roses, however; four metro areas saw median prices drop in 2013, and Charleston, WV, took the biggest, hit with an average home price decrease of 4.2%.
