Home Price Index

An running, regularly updated analysis of the Case-Schiller Home Price Index, which tracks the rise and fall of single family home prices.

Since 2008, we have been tracking the S&P Case-Shiller Home Price Index, which examines the rise and fall of single family home prices in 20 major metropolitan areas of the United States and have designed our own chart to offer a useful analysis of the data on a quarterly basis.

The chart is designed to track single family home prices in the New York City area, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and the Case Shiller Index of the 20 major metropolitan areas. We also include a trend line that shows how the index for the 20 major metro areas would have changed if home prices had appreciated at the historically expected 5% (See this Freddie Mac analysis of long term home price trends: Whither Home Values). Our “normal” trend line starts at January 2000 and increases prices annually at 5%.
