Phoenix homes are still appreciating very fast according to Case-Shiller data released on January 29, 2013.

The low priced homes in Phoenix have increased an amazing 50% since August 2011 according to my analysis of Case-Shiller raw data.

Phoenix Home Price Tier Breakpoints for November 2012

• Low Tier – Up to $142,714
• Middle Tier – $142,714 – $235,735
• High Tier – $235,735 and up

The Case-Shiller Home Price Index is the best estimate of actual home price appreciation (or depreciation). The downside to the Case-Shiller Index, however, is that it runs a little old, the most current data is only through November 2012.
