The biggest price gains over the past year, however, were in gay/lesbian and racially diverse neighborhoods. Racially and ethnically diverse neighborhoods, where no group makes up a majority of the population, saw home prices increase by 14.3%. Neighborhoods where same-sex male couples account for more than 1% of all households (that’s three times the national average) had price increases, on average, of 13.8%. In neighborhoods where same-sex female couples account for more than 1% of all households, prices increased by 16.5% – more than one-and-a-half times the national increase. That means homeowners in America’s gayborhoods have yet another reason to celebrate this June, which is Gay Pride month.
