Black Knight: House Price Index up 0.1% in November, Up 5.5% year-over-year

Note: I follow several house price indexes (Case-Shiller, CoreLogic, Black Knight, Zillow, FHFA, FNC and more). Note: Black Knight uses the current month closings only (not a three month average like Case-Shiller or a weighted average like CoreLogic), excludes short sales and REOs, and is not seasonally adjusted.

From Black Knight: U.S. home prices rose 0.1% from October, and were up 5.5% on a year-over-year basis

• U.S. home prices rose 0.1% from October, and were up 5.5% on a year-over- year basis

• This puts national home prices up 27% since the bottom of the market at the start of 2012 and just 5.3% off its June 2006 peak

• For the fifth straight month, New York led gains among the states, seeing 1.2% month-over-month appreciation

• Ohio and Connecticut topped the list of 10 most negative price movements among the states, with home prices falling by 0.4% from October in each state

• California home prices declined for the second straight month, though seasonally adjusted numbers suggest continued but slowing growth for the state
The Black Knight HPI increased 0.1% percent in November, and is off 5.3% from the peak in June 2006 (not adjusted for inflation).

The year-over-year increase in the index has been about the same for the last year.

Note: Case-Shiller for November will be released tomorrow.
