Month Over Month Property Value Declines for Past 6 Months

CoreLogic® Home Price Index Shows
Sixth Consecutive Month-Over-Month Decline

Year-Over-Year Declines Have Continued for the Last Eighteen Months

Home prices including distressed sales, declined on a year-over-year basis by 3.1 percent in January 2012 and by 1.0 percent compared to January 2012, the sixth consecutive monthly decline.

Excluding distressed sales, year-over-year prices declined by 0.9 percent in January 2012 compared to January 2011, but that same metric posted a month-over-month gain, rising 0.7 percent in January. Distressed sales include short sales and real estate owned (REO) transactions.

  • Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest appreciation were: South Dakota (+5.7 percent), North Dakota (+4.0 percent), West Virginia (+4.0 percent), Montana (+3.6 percent) and Michigan (+3.0 percent).
  • Including distressed sales, the five states with the greatest depreciation were: Illinois (-8.7 percent), Nevada (-8.0 percent), Delaware (-7.9 percent), Alabama (-7.7 percent) and Georgia (-7.5 percent).

CoreLogic is reporting that property values have been declining every month for the past 6 months. I can confirm that the areas of southern California where we appraise are mostly consistent with this trend. However, very recently I have seen evidence of a flattening in home pricing (I am not calling it flat yet, however). It is common for property values to decline during winter months and increase in the spring so it is also critically important to compare the same time periods across years to account for such seasonal trends.
