Case-Shiller Home Price Index Shows Continued Improvement

August 25th, 2009 Michael McDonough

The Case-Shiller 10 Metro-Area Composite Index rose 1.4% in June.  A month prior the 10 and 20 Metro-Area Indices rose by +0.4% and +0.5%, respectively.  These were the indices first increments since June 2006.  This morning’s rise is consistent with other housing related data that seems to imply a bottom and modest recovery for the sector. The 10 Metro-Area Index is still down 15.1% on a year over year basis.  Another positive indicator from this month’s data is that prices in hard-hit San Francisco and Minneapolis have begun to recover.  But, prices in the hardest hit city, Las Vegas, still continue to decline.  The only other city showing a month over month declines was Detroit, which is down 25% on a year over year basis.  The markets are trading higher on the positive news.
