Housing Rebound Stalls

The Case Shiller home price index since August 2000. Rocky rode, but up ~36% (3.1% annualized) since August 2000. To put that in perspective, that compares to a 25% increase (2.3% annualized) in CPI.

  1. People look at me like I am crazy when I say home prices could be the same in 10 years that they are today. Overshoot to the upside often means overshoot to the downside or a long time of going sideways.

  2. Perhaps I'm missing something, but what do the gold bars add to this chart?

  3. the initial chart (that i was going to post) had levels vs. YoY change. in that case it made sense to show both. the final chart... not so much
