HOME VALUES SHOW SLIGHT INCREASE

28 Sep

According to the most recent Standard & Poors Case-Shiller Home Price Indices (the leading measure of U.S. home prices) released September 27,  the 20-city Metropolitan Statistical Areas, or MSAs, show a fourth month of sustained growth.

This is far from indicating real recovery, but it is a step in the right direction and a speck of optimism on the horizon of those of us in the real estate and mortgage business.

The table below summarizes the results for July 2011. The S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices are revised for the 24 prior months, based on the receipt of additional source data. More than 24 years of history for these data series is available, and can be accessed in full by going to www.homeprice.standardandpoors.com
