The rising home prices aren't signs of trouble. In fact, they're helping Florida homeowners in big ways.

Recently there has been a lot of talk about home prices and if they are accelerating too quickly. As we've discussed at length throughout much of 2016, low inventory levels are playing a big role in the upward trajectory of home values because the seller supply (homes for sale) cannot keep up with the number of buyers out looking for a home.

The great news about the rising prices is the role they're playing in family wealth. According to CoreLogic’s US Economic Outlook, the average American household gained over $11,000 in equity over the course of the last year, largely due to home value increases.

In Florida, homeowners saw an average

The affordability of America's homes is on shaky ground, some experts now say. 

According to a recent CNBC report, rising mortgage rates, a lazy pace in income growth and steep climbs in home prices caused by low inventory levels are ultimately stars aligning in a troubling way. 

Homes are becoming less affordable... quickly. 

Right now, the average mortgage and interest payment for a home eats up about 22 percent of the median income in America,  a report from Black Knight Financial Services found. It's the least affordable homes have been in seven years. But thankfully, it's still below the 36 percent median income it took to afford a home at the height of the housing boom in 2005-2006.

Still, buyers' payments for a median priced home

(Daytona Beach, FL) – Home flipping continued its frenzied pace throughout 2016 with the Volusia County area climbing to the second highest spot among the metro areas with the nation’s highest flip rates. 

According to an annual report released by Trulia last week, house flipping around the nation hit a 10-year high and was so prolific that 6.1 percent of all home sales in 2016 were flips. The last time numbers were this high was in 2006, during the height of the housing boom. In 2015, 5.3 percent of homes sold were flips, the report said. 

(For the study, Trulia defined a flip home as “the purchase of a house at market rate and selling it at a higher market rate price, because of improvement to the property and/or rising prices” and it excluded

It's official. The rising prices that are benefiting home and condo owners across the Daytona Beach area and around the nation are the result of low inventory levels, according to findings in the latest Existing Home Sales Report from the National Association of Realtors (NAR). 

We are all familiar with the concept of supply and demand. As the demand for an item increases, the supply of that same item goes down. And that drives prices up. 

At a national level, year-over-year inventory levels have dropped each of the last 18 months. Inventory now stands at a 4.0-month supply, well below the 6.0-month supply needed for a ‘normal’ market.

The median price of homes sold in the United States in November was $234,900, up 6.8% from last year and marking

Americans Are on The Move [INFOGRAPHIC] | MyKCM

Americans are on the move

It's kind of in our nature. Well, for many of us, that is. For years, decades, maybe even centuries, Florida has been a top landing spot for restless travelers whose homes are elsewhere. 

Why wouldn't it be? We have NO snow. Our climate is typically beautiful with year-round average of about 72 degrees.

Our state is LITERALLY lined on all sides but one with beautiful sandy beaches. And pristine waterways wind everywhere through the middle.

So it should be no surprise to anyone that recent research looking at current moving trends uncovered that folks are flocking to Florida in droves. And they're coming for more than just the winter. They're staying. 

It's great news for homeowners, who will see their
