Chart of the Day: The Link Between Unemployment and Housing

This graph suggested to me that house prices would not bottom in real terms until the unemployment rate had peaked - and probably later (the recent housing bubble dwarfed the previous housing bubbles, and the bust will probably take some time). Real prices, as measure by LoanPerformance, hit new lows in February, although real Case-Shiller prices are still fractionally above the lows of last year. I expect further declines in both indexes later this year, and this graph suggests that real house prices are probably still 10% or more too high on a national basis.
