S&P/Case-Shiller released their monthly Home Price Indices for September this morning.
This monthly data includes prices for 20 individual cities, and two composite indices (10 cities and 20 cities). NOTE: This is the Not Seasonally Adjusted data - the link is broken for the SA data.
Click on graph for larger image in new window.
The first graph shows the nominal seasonally adjusted Composite 10 and Composite 20 indices (the Composite 20 was started in January 2000).
The Composite 10 index is off 29.9% from the peak, and up about 0.4% in September.
The Composite 20 index is off 29.1% from the peak, and up 0.3% in September.
The second graph shows the Year over year change in both indices.
The Composite 10 is off 8.5% from September 2008.
The Composite 20 is off 9.4% from September 2008.
This is still a very significant YoY decline in prices.
The third graph shows the price declines from the peak for each city included in S&P/Case-Shiller indices.
Prices decreased (SA) in 11 of the 20 Case-Shiller cities in September (NSA).
In Las Vegas, house prices have declined 55.4% from the peak. At the other end of the spectrum, prices in Dallas are only off about 4.7% from the peak - and up in 2009. Prices have declined by double digits from the peak in 18 of the 20 Case-Shiller cities.
I'll have more on prices (compare to stress, price-to-rent) later.
