Case-Shiller: San Francisco Home Prices “Clearly Recovering”

According to Case-Shiller, San Francisco home prices jumped last fall. Analyzing data through November, San Francisco area home prices are now back up to where they were in the Fall of 2008.

From Standard & Poors:

New York, January 29, 2013 – Data through November 2012, released today by S&P Dow Jones Indices for its S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices, the leading measure of U.S. home prices, showed home prices rose 4.5% for the 10-City Composite and 5.5% for the 20-City Composite in the 12 months ending in November 2012.

“The November monthly figures were stronger than October, with 10 cities seeing rising prices versus seven the month before.” says David M. Blitzer, Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices.

“Phoenix and San Francisco were both up 1.4% in November followed by Minneapolis up 1.0%. On the down side, Chicago was again amongst the weakest with a drop of 1.3% for November.

“Winter is usually a weak period for housing which explains why we now see about half the cities with falling month-to-month prices compared to 20 out of 20 seeing rising prices last summer. The better annual price changes also point to seasonal weakness rather than a reversal in the housing market. Further evidence that the weakness is seasonal is seen in the seasonally adjusted figures: only New York saw prices fall on a seasonally adjusted basis while Cleveland was flat.

San Francisco Bay Area home prices rose the second fastest of any metro area. Only Phoenix showed faster growth.

    I’d sure like to see more Granular data. A lot more Granular. Prices across an MSA are useful for some purposes but not for evaluating most neighborhoods let alone a specific house.
