For the ninth straight month, California dominate the list of the top 10 markets, with Los Angeles leading the way at an appreciation rate of 25.8 percent over the last year.Based on the month’s gains, three more of the top 100 largest markets have now achieved a full price recovery as of February: Salt Lake City, Utah; Albany, New York; and Chattanooga, Tennessee. The addition of those three metros—plus three others in Missouri and North Carolina—brings the total number of fully recovered markets on Homes.com’s list to 98.In addition, nearly two-thirds of the top 300 markets nationwide have rebounded more than 50 percent from their lowest price points since the crash.“February’s rebound progress illustrates how home prices in most markets across the country are appreciating, even in the depths of winter,” said Brock MacLean, EVP for Homes.com. “This is unusual given harsh weather conditions in most markets, but a positive sign as we enter peak season.”With more areas recovering to full health and more homeowners returning to positive-equity positions, MacLean says there’s greater hope for consumers to sell or refinance as the market stabilizes.Most of the top rebounding markets in February were in the South, including six in Texas, two in Oklahoma, and one in Louisiana (the exception being Pittsburgh).On the other hand, nearly all of the markets with the worst rebound percentages were located in states that have struggled since the crash, illustrating how far they still have to climb; out of the bottom 10, six were in Florida, two were in California, one was in Nevada, and one was in Massachusetts.

Arizona also has second-year pro D.J. Foster and the bigger Elijhaa Penny on the roster.Foster, who has seen an increased role since the departure of Andre Ellington, recorded a carry for four yards and added three receptions for 18 yards — including a tip-toe catch to set up the game-winning field goal — last week in the 27-24 win over the Jaguars.Additionally, the Cardinals promoted 24-year-old running back Bronson Hill off the practice squad on Wednesday.
