Double-Digit, Year-over-year Home Price Declines Continued in January

Highlights of LoanPerformance HPI January 2009 data:

  • National resale housing prices fell 11.6 percent in January from a year ago.
  • The number of metropolitan markets experiencing price declines was, by far, the highest level tracked by the LoanPerformance HPI. As of January 2009, more than 700, or nearly three-quarters, of all metropolitan markets were experiencing home price depreciation, up from 254 markets experiencing depreciation in December 2007 and 394 in June 2008.
  • The composition of the top 5 markets began to shift in January as Nevada (-26.9%) became the top ranked state for price depreciation, displacing California (-26.7%), which had led the nation in price depreciation since May 2007. Arizona (-21.3%) remained the third ranked state in terms of price depreciation, but Rhode Island (-19.7%) edged out Florida (-19.5%) and now ranks 4th in the nation in terms of price declines.
  • Since U.S. home prices peaked in July 2006, they have declined 21.2 percent on a cumulative basis and are currently back to the lowest price level since March 2004.

"Home prices nationally continue to fall, and are no longer confined to just the ‘sand’ states. Nearly three quarters of all CBSAs are now experiencing declines, almost three times more than a year ago." said Mark Fleming, chief economist for First American CoreLogic. "The economic downturn and high levels of distressed housing inventory," he continued, "means that the likelihood of a price recovery will not begin until 2010 (more)."
