Case-Shiller: Home prices rising three times the rate of inflation

The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Prices NSA Index, which covers all nine U.S. census divisions, reported an increase of 6.2% in November. This is up from the annual increase of 6.1% the previous month.

The 10-City Composite held an annual increase of 6.1%, up from 5.9% the previous month. The 20-City Composite increased 6.4% year-over-year, up from the annual increase of 6.3% in October.

“Home prices continue to rise three times faster than the rate of inflation,” said David Blitzer, S&P Dow Jones Indices managing director and chairman of the index committee. “The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Index year-over-year increases have been 5% or more for 16 months; the 20-City index has climbed at this pace for 28 months.”

Some cities saw higher increases than others. Seattle, Las Vegas and San Francisco reported the highest annual gains among the nation’s top 20 cities with increases of 12.7%, 10.6% and 9.1% respectively.

And one factor stands above the rest as being the main factor to the continually rising home prices.

“Given slow population and income growth since the financial crisis, demand is not the primary factor in rising home prices,” Blitzer said. “Construction costs, as measured by national income and product accounts, recovered after the financial crisis, increasing between 2% and 4% annually, but do not explain all of the home price gains.”

    My understanding of the economy is legendary, but my calls will go unheard. I’m just a nobody, so my calls will be ignored. Instead we listen to idiots on a daily basis who tell us the stock market is overpriced in the midst of the greatest economic boom of our lifetime.

    Legendary? Post your picks in real time instead of babbling. If your so good, you should be making money hand over fist.

    Drug prices are much higher in the US than in other countries. Why?
    Other countries have some kind of national bargaining; the US lets drug companies exploit their monopoly power to the fullest.
    Trump is going to fix this?

    I didn’t watch the SOTU address. I stopped watching them after RR. Since then, the same speeches offered at the national conventions during the primary are pretty much repeated to the same ignorant standing ovations. All talk, no action.

    Were Dem woman wearing white dresses again?

    How’s everyone liking Murphy? I saw yesterday where he appointed a crony to run NJ Transit. This is exactly why it’s where it is now. Whoever gives the most to the PAC wins. Check out the AECOM PAC. This dude is a staunch environmentalist who spent 17 years in the patronage mill known as the Port Authority. He cut his teeth in the maritime industry. This will really help NJT.

    A nice home around the corner from me took 8 months to move and got something like 70k under original asking. The asking was a little high but a comp across the street went for 50k more. I saw both homes inside and out. The nicer home went for 50k less a year later after 8 months of dragging their feet. The other home went in 5 days. It’s just one data point but an alarming one to me.

    LPGA legend Suzann Pettersen on Trump:

    “He cheats like hell. So I don’t quite know how he is in business.
    They say that if you cheat at golf, you cheat at business.”

  25. Blue Ribbon Teacher says:

    Cheating in golf is not restricted to Republican presidents, however. Bill Clinton was famed for taking “mulligans” or uncounted strokes if he was displeased with his initial effort. “Playing partners don’t just give [Clinton] gimme putts,” wrote Don Van Natta Jr in a book about golfing presidents. “They give him gimme fairway shots, and gimme drives, and gimme chip shots. If someone makes a par, Clinton gets a par, too. If everyone makes a triple-bogey, Clinton gets a double-bogey.”

  27. No One says:

    I just started playing golf a couple years ago. I was in a tennis slump and decided I needed a backup sport as I aged, requiring less in the reaction time department. Golf can be more frustrating than tennis. I’m a strong 3.5 USTA tennis player, but struggle to break 100 in golf. Golf is also way more expensive and less exercise.

They listed for 70k more than 2012 purchase price. If they get it, I will feel good. If not and it sits then cements my belief that CT is sucking wind.

    Democrats look really stupid after last night. This whole daca debacle is going to be a big problem for them. They haven’t made a good argument yet and are using it as a political bargaining chip, they need to compromise to do and if they are unwilling they might as well sign the deportation orders themselves. The dems are acting like petulant children and it shows, I think the midterms might not be so kind to them.

  37. Ex-Jersey says:

    12:16 let’s bet on this one….I will bet Trump lose’s his majority in the mid terms. Simply because as dumb as most American’s are they will realize that this is best…..

    Justice Department asks to drop Menendez indictment, ending case launched in 2015.

    Another politician walks. What a surprise.

    How he could accept 650K in contributions from one person is what disgusts me more than the fact the person was convicted of medicare fraud. The free trips, the green cards, the forgot to put them down as gifts stuff is minor when compared. As usual, anything goes in our highly corrupt banana republic.

  42. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    That’s usually what happens to a first term prez, but like Lib, I doubt that that is a given. The Dems really have zero platform aside from, “We hate him.” War or a good economy usually keeps the majority of voters siding with the prez. Maybe we’ll have both?

    As much as it annoys me to see Gary lavishing this moment of Republican majority joy, especially when he utters the shallow stuff. It pains me more to see how absolutely clueless the Dem platform continues to be. I am beginning to see a few minor players start to get it, but unfortunately, the big mouths, like the Pelosis and the Schumers, who bleed the liberal playbook, are ensuring continued Republican majority rule with it’s complete disregard for the poor, the environment, individual rights (except when it comes to guns), etc. And I hate to say this too, but Trump’s success with the economy has everything to do with Trump’s crackhead ideas and nothing to do with Republican agenda. Time will tell if any of it works. If it doesn’t, this whole kissing of Trump’s ass like he’s a savior, could backfire terribly for the Republican Party. The question is…is Trump playing the red team, or does he really want to join them? I’m leaning towards the former. This doofus plays everyone for his personal benefit.

    Ex-Edward Jones FA Settles Over Alleged Fake S5x Ads

    January 31, 2018

    Watchdog Finra has suspended a former Edward Jones advisor and fined him $7,500 for allegedly impersonating a competing registered representative in online s5x ads, according to a letter of acceptance, waiver and consent posted by the industry’s self-regulator.

    Paul Martin Betenbaugh allegedly posted ads soliciting s5xual encounters with men on three separate occasions in September and October 2015, Finra says.

    The ads included the competing rep’s business cell phone number, and the rep allegedly received texts and phone calls responding to the ads, according to the letter.

    Betenbaugh, his fellow advisor Lisa Rodriguez and Edward Jones were sued last summer by Dalas Gundersen, who accused them of perpetrating a smear campaign that included bogus Cra!gslist s3ex ads. Edward Jones had fired Gundersen in December 2014 for alleged violations of company policy on trade confirmations. Rodriguez has denied any role in the Cra!gslist affair.

  63. Fabius Maximus says:

    I listened to the SOTU and wow that was depressing. The first though was yes, he is reading the speech and sticking to the script. Another be it rare flash of Donnie with the demeanor that I would like to see in a CinC. Some self control and focus on the task. But that soon changed when I started hearing the message the speech conveyed and oh boy that was bad.
    He might as well have done a live remote from Charlotsville. I’m sure every Wh1te Supremisist was jacking off as hard as Gary.
    The couples from Long Island were particuarly sicking, Using their grief for political grand standing was a new low. Yes MS-13 is a problem. So are the He11s Angels, Bloods, Cripss, Ar yan Brotherhood and every other gang runnning drugs. Solve the drug problem and the gangs go away.
    The worst line of the speech “I call on Congress to empower every Cabinet Secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American people.” Looking at what is happening in the EPA, State Dept, DOJ and all down the chain. There will be a 40yr walk back from the damage this presidency is causing.
    With Black unemployment at record lows (Donnie did it in a year, what BS), you throw out all the illegals and eliminate unskilled immigration, “Who shovels Sh1t in the Gulch?”

  64. Fabius Maximus says:

    “continued Republican majority rule with it’s complete disregard for the poor, the environment, ”

    The majority will try to be maintained with the district redrawing and the voter ID laws ALEC are pushing.

    Do you see the irony here where you say that the GOP have disregard for the poor, yet it is the Dems that you claim are disenfranchising them.

    “American’s are dreamers, too.”

    There is a very simple response to this.

    The American Dream was the envy of the world, this Administration has choked and killed the Dream.

    The Dream is not for you, if you are not Rich.
    If you don’t have money, the Dream is not for you if you don’t have the required Skills.
    If you don’t have the required Skills, the Dream is not for you if you don’t have the required Religion.
    If you don’t have the required Religion, the Dream is not for you if you were not born in the required country.

    The Dream is Dead.

    Need one amplification…

    “Using their grief for political grand standing was a new low. ”

    See Obama in in Sandy Hook. The bodies weren’t even cold and he was up there at a podium grandstanding his political viewpoint on guns.

  69. leftwing says:

    Oooops, I forgot. Obama wasn’t grandstanding because the Left’s opinions are…well…just…the truth and indisputably RIGHT.

    Trump was grandstanding because anyone holding an opposing view is just holding an opinion, and that’s flat out WRONG.

    Apologies, forgot to engage my liberal hypocrisy and double standard decoder ring.

  70. Fabius Maximus says:

    This sums it up. I recall Eddie Ray making the Judeo- Christian founders argument back in the day.
    http://www.nj.com/opinion/index.ssf/2018/01/nj_senator_a_white_man_just_wants_to_feel_comforta.html

    “The basic culture of this country is European and Christian and I think that if we lose that, we lost America…I don’t think we should suppress other races, but I think if we lose that white — what’s the word for it — that white dominance in America, with it we lose America.”

  71. Fabius Maximus says:

    Left,

    Sandy Hook, is tied to the Gun Control debate.
    Those kids died not because of Immigration (chain or whatever), but of gang violence, the two are not tied.

    No Butt-hurt here, just sadness.

    And I get partisan politics. For all the noise on Nancy et al, sitting through Donnies speech, it is perfectly balanced by all the GOP asses glued to seats when O was delivering.
