The Federal Housing Finance Agency report shows no signs of slowdown in home price growth nationwide. Washington and Oregon top the charts on a handful of measures, ranking no. 2 and 8 respectively on home price appreciation by state.

Seattle is at the top of the list of major U.S. cities that are seeing the highest increases in home prices. That’s according to the real estate firm Zillow, which released a new report Wednesday.

Home prices in the Seattle and Portland metro areas are rising faster than anywhere else in the country right now -- about twice as fast as the national average.
