  1. Sure, all twenty cities posted monthly gains in August, (the devil is in the details) but, most cities showed deceleration compared to July! Since the summer is the strongest time for real estate activity . . . this could be a sign of a turn around in the increasing home price appreciation!

  2. David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P Dow Jones, said an increase in interest rates in May could be a reason for demand for housing to decline. All 20 cities on the index saw monthly increases, but fifteen of those gains were smaller from the month before.

  3. Another take: DataQuick, another home-price monitor, reported that the median price in August was $415,000, down from $417,500 in July. But it’s still up 20.2 percent from year-ago levels!

  4. This could be a welcome relief to most who are waiting for some in San Diego’s challenging market for home-buyers.
