Housing Update

Time for my quarterly update of the housing situation in the United States, using the single-best barometer of all, existing home prices as published each month by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Other measures, such as the S&P/Case-Shiller index, are good but they don’t have the database the NAR does.

This go ‘round we look at the second half of the year. Spring is around the corner so activity will no doubt pick up, as should prices, but the question is, have we finally bottomed and will the spring’s advance be sustained? The following is the national median home price.

2011

July…$171,200
Aug…$171,200
Sept…$165,300
Oct….$160,800
Nov…$164,000
Dec…$164,500

2010

July…$182,100
Aug…$177,300
Sept…$171,400
Oct….$170,600
Nov…$170,200
Dec…$168,800

2009

July…$181,300
Aug…$177,200
Sept…$175,900
Oct….$172,000
Nov…$170,000
Dec…$170,500

Using the NAR’s data, the median average for a full year was as follows.

2004…$185,200
2005…$219,600
2006…$221,900*
2007…$219,000
2008…$198,100
2009…$172,500
2010…$172,900
2011…$166,100

*Existing home prices peaked in July 2006 at $230,200… according to NAR. You can play around with the numbers any way you want but generally you’re talking of a ‘formal’ decline of 30%, peak to trough. That’s the national figure. Of course the damage elsewhere has been far worse.
