On a year-over-year basis, Miami and Las Vegas have led the way

Lenders like Peoples Home Equity were pleased to see the results of the latest Case-Shiller Home Price Index release on Tuesday, November 25th.

The Case-Shiller National Home Price Index rose 4.8% on a year-over-year basis for September 2014. Unfortunately, none of the major indices: national, 10-city, or 20-city rose on a month-over-month basis in September. However, many individual city indices showed notable gains for September. Miami experienced the highest return of 0.64%, followed by Charlotte at 0.58%, and Las Vegas at 0.42%. The worst month-over-month performers were: Washington D.C. at -0.43%, Atlanta at -0.25%, and San Francisco at -0.22%. It looks like the markets that outperformed during the housing crisis, such as San Francisco and Washington D.C. are taking a pause while buyers look for value purchases in Miami and Las Vegas where the real estate in those cities are flooded with foreclosures.

On a year-over-year basis, Miami and Las Vegas have led the way, respectively returning 10.31% and 9.15%, San Francisco follows in 3rd place at 7.95%. However, on a year-to-date basis, from January 1st to September 30th, the markets that outperformed during the housing crisis are continuing to outperform in 2014. San Francisco leads 2014’s year-to-date returns at 7.57%, followed by Dallas at 7.17%, Seattle at 7.05%, and Denver at 7%.
