Case-Shiller Home Prices: Selected Cities

by Bill McBride on 6/24/2008 10:40:00 AM

As noted earlier, S&P reported that the Case-Shiller home price composite indices declined sharply in April. The Case-Shiller composite 20 index (20 large cities) was off 15.3% YoY through April, and off 17.8% from the peak.

Note: the composite 20 index is not the National Price index, but this does suggests the national index will be off sharply in Q2.

However, 8 of the 12 cities in the composite 20 saw month to month price increases.

This graph shows the price changes for several selected cities that I've been following. Prices continue to fall in the 'bubble' cities, like San Diego, Miami, and Las Vegas.

Prices actually rose slightly in areas that saw less appreciation, like Denver and Cleveland. However this could just be seasonal noise, as these cities saw small increases last year at this time too.
