Denver led the nation with a price increase of 10.3 percent for the 12-month period, says the index. That was a slightly higher percentage than San Francisco, which was second. Home prices in Denver reached an all-time high in April. They’re up on average 66 percent since 2000.
The city is one of only two major cities in the country to see home prices exceed those at the peak of the housing bubble. Dallas is the second city.
