Home price growth hit an all-time high in March: This is how homeowners can cash in!

Home prices surged 20.6% annually in March, according to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index, and marked the strongest annual gain in the history of the report. The bump was an increase from the 20% annual gain seen in February, and prices jumped 2.1% from February to March on a monthly basis.

"Those of us who have been anticipating a deceleration in the growth rate of U.S. home prices will have to wait at least a month longer," S&P Dow Jones Indices Managing Director Craig Lazzara said. "For both National and 20-City Composites, March's reading was the highest year-over-year price change in more than 35 years of data, with the 10-City growth rate at the 99th percentile of its own history." 
If you're seeing rapid gains in your home's value, consider utilizing a cash-out refinance — doing so can allow you to take advantage of the equity you’ve built in your home and keep the difference between loan amounts.
