In addition to Case-Shiller, and CoreLogic, I’m also watching the FNC, Zillow and several other house price indexes.
FNC released their August index data today. FNC reported that their Residential Price Index™ (RPI) indicates that U.S. residential property values increased 0.8% from July to August (Composite 100 index, not seasonally adjusted). The other RPIs (10-MSA, 20-MSA, 30-MSA) increased between 0.9% and 1.1% in August. These indexes are not seasonally adjusted (NSA), and are for non-distressed home sales (excluding foreclosure auction sales, REO sales, and short sales).
The year-over-year (YoY) change was the same in August as in July, with the 100-MSA composite up 7.5% compared to August 2013. In general, for FNC, the YoY increase has been slowing since peaking in February at 9.4%.
The index is still down 18.8% from the peak in 2006.
