Case-Shiller Housing Declines Since Peak; Better Prices Still Coming

• GlobalEconomicAnalysis.blogspot.com
 
Mish, I've attached several Case-Shiller graphs based upon most recent Case-Shiller data. The charts show that all 20 metros are down from the peak prices between -10.7% (Dallas) and -58.6% (Las Vegas). Note that 13 of 20 cities tracked are presently at the lowest point in the cycle, while 7 cities are presently higher than their early 2009 low. Of the 7 cities that are higher, San Francisco leads the way at +10.3% (+$43,461). However, San Francisco it still an amazing -40.6% (-$317,790) below peak prices. Of particular interest is the "Price Level" column which displays how far back prices have reverted. For example, you can see that Atlanta has reverted back to April 1999 prices (and keep in mind this is nominal!). Three-fourths of the US is at the lowest point in the cycle, while 1/4 is up modestly and most likely temporarily.
