In some markets hit hard by foreclosures, the turnaround in prices is already underway. Phoenix recorded an 8.4% jump in home prices during the three months ended April 30, compared with the three months ended January 31, according to Clear Capital.

Miami saw a 4.6% increase quarter-over-quarter through April, andTampa, Fla., was up 4.4%, according to Clear Capital.
