home prices - San Diego real estate agentThe Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index just released, tumbled a record 16.6% during the quarter from the same period a year ago. Prices are at levels not seen since the first quarter of 2004.

The 20-city index fell by 17.4% in September compared with a year ago, the largest drop since its inception in 2000. 

Lawrence J. White, professor of economics at New York University’s Stern School of Business said: “House price declines have been at the root of the financial crisis and it appears, as of September, that this decline continued unabated. Until we have some kind of stabilization in the house price sector, we will continue to see problems in the financial sector. House prices will probably drop another 10 percent, but I am hopeful that a bottom will be reached in the late spring of 2009.”

  1. Everyone likes to talk about the foreclosures as if it’s a bad thing when the reality is that it’s an incredibly good thing. All the bad loans inflated the market well beyond what it should have been. As these people default on their bad loans the price of housing corrects, as it should, and maybe the rest of us get to buy. This story is good news and it should be reported as such. Or, would we all be better off if the government steps in and inflates pricing again.
