You can hear it across the country. The sigh of relief as the U.S. housing market continues to make substantial gains. We started seeing improvements in late 2012 and by March of 2013 home prices were on a steady incline with gains of 10.9 percent from a year earlier, showing the largest 12-month increase in U.S. property value since April 2006.

Where Phoenix has seen a 24 percent increase and another 10.6 percent projected for the coming months.
