Despite an appreciation in home prices in the first half of 2012, list prices actually declined in recent months and a growing number of housing markets are actually reporting year-over-year list declines, Realtor.com reported.

The supply of housing declined steadily throughout the year, and the number of properties on the market in December dropped nearly 50% below levels experienced at the height of the housing collapse.

"These potentially off-setting trends suggest that house price appreciation in the upcoming year is likely to be more moderate than it was in 2012," Realtor.com said.
