Housing markets in Idaho and the Treasure Valley continued to surge in May, according to a report from industry analytics firm CoreLogic.
Homes in the Boise-Nampa area sold for an average of 15.5 percent more in May than in May 2012, according to the report.
Sales prices increased nationally 12.2 percent, representing the biggest year-over-year increase since February 2006.
May marked the 15th-straight increase in average home sales nationally.
Sales prices were up 12.7 percent increase across Idaho which saw the 9th largest year-over-year price increase. Nevada had the largest increase at 26 percent.
Alabama (-0.1 percent) and Delaware (-0.6 percent) were the only states that saw year-over-year sales decrease in May.
The report predicted year-over-year sales averages in June to increase 13.2 percent.
"It's been more than seven years since the housing market last experienced the increases that we saw in May, with indications that the summer months will continue to see significant gains," Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic, said in a prepared statement.
