From CAR figures on National Home Prices.
U.S. home prices posted record declines in the fourth quarter of 2008 according to a Federal Housing Finance Agency's (FHFA's) House Price Index (HPI) report released yesterday. The FHFA seasonally adjusted purchase-only house price index, based on data from home sales, was 3.4 percent lower on a seasonally adjusted basis in the fourth quarter compared with the third quarter. The decrease was greater than the 2 percent decline reported in the third quarter, and the largest in the purchase-only index's 18-year history. Over the past year, seasonally adjusted prices fell 8.2 percent from the fourth quarter of 2007 compared with the fourth quarter of 2008.
FHFA's all-transactions House Price Index, which includes data from home sales and appraisals for refinancings, showed significantly less weakness over the latest quarter than the purchase-only index, according to the report. The all-transactions HPI fell 0.2 percent in the fourth quarter, and declined 4.5 percent over the four-quarter period, the largest four-quarter drop in the index. Of the 20 ranked cities with the greatest price declines over the last four quarters, all but one, Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev., was in California or Florida. The Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) with the greatest depreciation rate included Merced at -49.5 percent, Stockton at -40.2 percent, and Modesto at -37.8 percent.
That's it from here, have a great day. See you tomorrow.
