99 Metros Make Up Latest ‘Improving’ Housing Index
The housing market continues to show signs of a turnaround with 99 real estate markets now making up this month’s Improving Markets Index.

Just before launching into the spring selling season, about a quarter of all metro areas are showing improvements to their housing markets, according to the index.

The monthly index, which is conducted by the National Association of Home Builders and First American, reveals what metro areas have shown an up tick in housing permits, employment and housing prices for at least six consecutive months.

In the top 31 metro areas, Dayton and Columbus were named.
