​​​​​​​​​​​​AUSTIN – The national leader in the rise of housing prices was Austin, where the value of a typical home soared by 64.9 percent between Sept. 30, 2006, and Sept. 30, 2016. 

American City Business Journals (ACBJ) compared local house prices in the third quarters 2006 and 2016 using an index managed by the Federal Housing Finance Agency.​ 

Home prices have been on the rise with impressive vigor across much of the South as well as in pockets of the West and the industrial Northeast. 

But values are more depressed today than they were a decade ago in dozens of cities especially hard hit during last decade's housing bust and subsequent recession.

Among the 124 housing markets analyzed, slightly more than half—66 in total—saw pricing increases during the decade in question. 

The remaining 58 areas were down from where they were in 2006.

After Austin, Denver ranked second for its jump in home values with an increase of 45.5 percent during the same ten-year span. 

​Rounding out the top five was a trio of Texas metropolitan regions: Houston (up 45.2 percent), Dallas (43.6 percent) and San Antonio (35.9 percent).
