  • For Housing, an October to Forget

    Housing markets in key major metropolitan areas endured their worst Oct. in at least eight years -- and perhaps longer, as the number of distressed property sales managed to push recorded home prices downward further and a number of key MSAs saw sales volume drop sharply.

A new report Friday from real estate analytics firm RadarLogic confirms that trend: in 25 tradeable MSAs, only three markets showed price increases during Febraury, and 22 showed declines on a year-over-year basis; however, ten MSAs posted price increases from January to February, and nine of those still show a positive 30-day trend.

  • A Needle in a Haystack: Where's the Good News on Housing?

    There is plenty of bad news on housing, at least transactionally, right now -- prices are down, sales volume is down, inventories remain far too high. And that shouldn't be surprising, given that we're in the middle of one of the worst downcycles for real estate in our nation's history. A report released yesterday by real estate analytics firm RadarLogic highlighted continued problems for housing in January: out of 25 major MSAs studied, only two -- Charlotte, NC and New York -- remained in positive pricing territory on a yearly comparison basis.
