10 Cities Where Home Prices Will Rise in 2011

While home prices are expected to continue to fall in most metro areas, Clear Captial’s Home Data Index report says a few cities are already on the rebound and showing some gains in home values.

“There really is this segmentation of these markets occurring where the one-size-fits-all national level numbers to represent all numbers really isn’t valid anymore,” Alex Villacorta, senior statistician at Clear Capital, told MSNBC. “Overall we’re seeing prices start to stabilize going into 2011, but unfortunately some of those markets will stabilize in the downward direction where others will see a sustained recovery.”

Clear Capital takes into account unemployment rates, foreclosure rates, and real estate inventory in its index.

The following list of cities that Clear Capital expects will rise in property value in 2011:

1. Washington, D.C.: 6.5 percent price increase

2. Housto: 3.6 percent price increase

3. Honolulu: 3.4 percent price increase

4. Memphis, Tenn.: 3.2 percent price increase

5. Columbus, Ohio: 2.1 percent price increase

6. Dallas: 1.4 percent price increase

7. New York: 1.3 percent price increase

8. Birmingham, Ala: 0.8 percent price increase

9. Pittsburgh: 0.8 percent price increase

10. New Orleans: 0.5 percent price increase

Meanwhile, Clear Capital reports that real estate markets in Florida and the Wester parts of the U.S. – such as cities in Arizona and “Breadbasket metros” like Oklahoma City, Okla. and Dayton, Ohio – likely will see the largest price drops in home values over the year. Virginia Beach, VA. is expected to have the highest drop in 2011 with an 12.8 percent price decrease – according to the Clear Capital report.
