Home prices are on the rise around America. According to the National Association of Realtors, single home prices rose in 92% of U.S. metropolitan areas on an annual basis. Despite the increase in home prices, sales were down over 3% in the last quarter. Indicators show that the most extreme price gains are beginning to slow. The housing market's future is in question after the latest tax reform proposal in the House. The bill would reduce tax reductions for home buyers. The new tax bill would also double the standard deduction. That would mean only owners with the priciest homes will be able to continue itemizing their returns to get the tax break.
