On [Tuesday] January 29th, the Case-Shiller Composite Home Price Indices for November will be released. Zillow predicts that the 20-City Composite Home Price Index (non-seasonally adjusted [NSA]) will be up by 5.3 percent on a year-over-year basis, while the 10-City Composite Home Price Index (NSA) will be up 4.5 percent on a year-over-year basis. The seasonally adjusted (SA) month-over-month change from October to November will be 0.3 percent for both the 20-City Composite and the 10-City Composite Home Price Index (SA).Zillow's forecasts for Case-Shiller have been pretty close. Right now it looks like Case-Shiller will be over 6% in 2012 (through the December / Q4 reports to be released in February).
To forecast the Case-Shiller indices we use past data from Case-Shiller, as well as the Zillow Home Value Index (ZHVI), which is available a month in advance of Case-Shiller numbers, paired with foreclosure re-sale numbers, which we also have available a month prior to Case-Shiller numbers. Together, these data points enable us to reliably forecast the Case-Shiller 10-City and 20-City Composite indices. The ZHVI does not include foreclosure re-sales and closed 2012 (December) with home values up 5.9% from year-ago levels. We expect home value appreciation to moderate in 2013, rising only 3.3 percent from December 2012 to December 2013. Further details on our forecast can be found here.
