Home prices regained upward momentum in the third quarter, according to ATTOM Data Solutions, rising 2.9% from the previous quarter and 8.3% from the previous year. Average homeownership tenure, meanwhile, hit a new high, of 8.19 years — it was less than half that during the housing bubble of the early-to-mid-2000s.
