Home prices are still on a tear, Case-Shiller says
May 29, 2018 | Andrea Riquier | MarketWatch
The numbers: The S&P/Case-Shiller national index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.4% and was up 6.5% compared to a year ago in March. The 20-city index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.5% and was 6.8% higher than a year ago.
What happened: Home-price growth showed no sign of slowing down. Demand is strong, supply is short and favorable economic conditions are making it possible for many people to bid prices up.
In fact, yearly price gains in the closely-watched 20-city index have accelerated every month since last June. The annual gain in the March report, which actually covers the three-month period ending in March, was the strongest since mid-2014.Go Back
