Good news, Denver.
The real estate research site, HSH.com, uses the Federal Housing Finance Agency's Home Price Index to determine which markets have, or haven't, recovered and the latest analysis shows that Denver has seen the greatest amount of growth.
As house prices start to slow around the country it is worth looking at which markets are still holding their own in a down market.
Their analysis also showed that five markets have seen home values double.
Here are the five metro areas that have seen home values more than double since their low point.
Cape Coral-Fort Myers, FL (up 101.13% from bottom) Stockton, CA (+118.18%) Las Vegas-Henderson-Paradise, NV (+145.26%) Sacramento-Roseville-Folsom, CA (+100.56%) North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton, FL (+104.51%) One overall piece of good news was that the metro area that has shown the least recovery, Las Vegas, is only down by about 9% compared to its peak.
Meaning, on the list of ten least-recovered cities it had the smallest gap compared to its peak.
Thus, the worst performing city today (Las Vegas) is still better than the "best of the worst" about ten years ago.
