Today, in the Calculated Risk Real Estate Newsletter: Part 2: Current State of the Housing Market; Overview for mid-November
A brief excerpt: Last week, in Part 1: Current State of the Housing Market; Overview for mid-November I reviewed home inventory and sales.
Most measures of house prices have shown an increase in prices over the last several months, and a key question I discussed in July is Will house prices decline further later this year? I will revisit this question soon.
Other measures of house prices suggest prices will be up further YoY in the September Case-Shiller index. The NAR reported median prices were up 2.8% YoY in September, down from 3.9% YoY in August. ICE / Black Knight reported prices were up 4.3% YoY in September, up from 3.7% YoY in August to new all-time highs, and Freddie Mac reported house prices were up 5.2% YoY in September, up from 4.3% YoY in August – and also to new all-time highs.
The FMHPI and the NAR median prices appear to be leading indicators for Case-Shiller. Based on recent monthly data, and the FMHPI, the YoY change in the Case-Shiller index will increase further in the report for September.There is much more in the article.
