Home values increased nationally by 3.2 percent this past year and are expected to rise by 1.7 percent over the next year.

In the valley, the largest percentage increase this past year came in North Las Vegas, where home values rose by 8.3 percent to $102,200.

Home values jumped in Henderson by 6.9 percent to $160,700, while climbing 6.3 percent to $115,900 in the city of Las Vegas.
