USA: Home Prices Rise Faster in Gayborhoods

Trulia logoHome prices are rising faster in major U.S. cities than in their suburbs, especially in neighborhoods that have larger gay and lesbian populations and are more racially diverse, according to a national listing service.

Asking prices, on a per-square-foot basis, for houses in urban neighborhoods have risen by 11.3 percent in the past year, Trulia says. In suburban neighborhoods, the price gain was 10.2 percent.
