by Bill McBride on 3/27/2017 07:09:00 PM

Here is the Zillow forecast (They've been very close each month):

The January Case-Shiller national index is expected to grow 6 percent year-over-year and 0.5 percent from December, up from 5.8 percent annual growth recorded in November but down somewhat from 0.7 percent monthly growth in December. The smaller 10- and 20-city indices are both expected to grow by 0.7 percent month-over-month (SA), slower than the 0.9 percent monthly growth recorded in December. On an annual basis, the 10- and 20-city indices are expected to grow by 5.1 percent and 5.7 percent in January, respectively, up from 4.9 percent and 5.6 percent in November.
• At 9:00 AM ET, S&P/Case-Shiller House Price Index for January. Although this is the January report, it is really a 3 month average of November, December and January prices. The consensus is for a 5.7% year-over-year increase in the Comp 20 index for January.
