“Two months of accelerating costs don’t a definitive restoration make, however March’s outcomes counsel that the decline in residence costs that started in June 2022 might have come to an finish,” stated Craig J. Lazzara, managing director at S&P Dow Jones Indices.

He famous that costs rose in March in all 20 of the most important U.S. metropolitan areas.
