Home Values Keep Rising in Opportunity Zones
According to ATTOM Data’s second-quarter 2021 Opportunity Zones report median single-family home prices increased from Q2 of 2020 to the second quarter of 2021 in 75% of Opportunity Zones and rose by at least 15% in about half of them. In addition they report that price patterns in Opportunity Zones continued to roughly track trends in other areas of the U.S.
“Housing markets kept chugging along in some of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods during the second quarter of this year in another sign that the decade long home-price boom across the nation knows pretty much no boundaries. Values kept rising inside specially designated Opportunity Zones at around the same rate as they did in other areas even as the Coronavirus pandemic continued causing economic hardship,” said Todd Teta, chief product officer with ATTOM.
