An uptick in existing-home sales in the final three months of 2017 pulled down housing inventory to an all-time low and kept home-price growth at its recent robust pace, according to the latest quarterly report by the National Association of Realtors, out Tuesday.

The national median existing single-family home price in the fourth quarter was $247,800, which is up 5.3% from the fourth quarter of 2016 ($235,400). The median price during last year’s third quarter climbed 5.6% from the third quarter of 2016.

Single-family home prices last quarter increased in 92% of measured markets, with 162 out of 177 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) showing sales price gains in the fourth quarter compared to a year ago. Twenty-six metro areas (15%) experienced double-digit increases (11% in the third quarter), and 18 metros eclipsed their previous peak sales price. Overall, home prices are now at their all-time high in 114 markets (64%).

Valentine's Day: The Mysterious History of the Real Saint

Nowadays, the premise of Valentine’s Day is simple to understand: Feb. 14 is a time to show appreciation for friends, families, significant others and anyone else you might love. Pinpointing the story of its namesake Saint Valentine, however, is more difficult.

There are multiple legends of Saint Valentine, and different reliquaries in the Czech Republic, Ireland, Scotland, England and France all claim to have bones attributed to a Saint Valentine.

While Catholics believe that Feb. 14 commemorates the martyrdom of Saint Valentine, who was a Roman priest beheaded in the third century, no one can agree on exactly what he did or why he was executed. Some legends say Valentine was a bishop in Terni, Italy, who healed the sick, including the blind daughter of a prison guard whom he met while in jail for practicing Christianity in a pagan world. Some say he was sentenced to death because he tried to convert Emperor Claudius to Christianity. Others say the sentence came because he was caught secretly performing weddings, defying a ban on marriage that had been imposed by the Emperor as a solution to a military recruitment crunch.
