OFHEO: New U.S. monthly housing price index estimates 0.6 percent increase between Januaury and FebruauryMortgagePress.comOFHEO, statistics, House Price Index, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac U.S. home prices rose approximately 0.6 percent on a seasonally-adjusted basis between January and February, according to OFHEO's new monthly House Price Index. For the 12 months ending in February, U.S. prices fell 2.4 percent. Since its peak in April 2007, the index is down 3.1 percent. The OFHEO monthly index is calculated using purchase prices of houses backing mortgages that have been sold to or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. The index, introduced in OFHEOs fourth quarter 2007 House Price Index (HPI) report, provides a timely indicator of house price conditions for the nation and each of the nine Census Divisions. For the nine Census Divisions, seasonally-adjusted monthly price changes from January to February ranged from -0.6 percent in the Mountain Census Division to 2.2 percent in the New England Division. Changes in the national index, which is constructed as a weighted average of data from the nine Census Divisions, reflect movements in market prices as well as changes in the mix of geographic areas within Census Divisions. Normally changes in the mix are relatively small. However, in February, the share of reported sales volumes rose in states with stronger housing markets, which significantly increased estimated appreciation above what it would have been in the absence of such effects. Holding the weights for each state constant, the national increase would have been only 0.3 percent in February. Monthly index values and appreciation rate estimates are provided in the table and graph on the following pages. All estimates are seasonally adjusted and, as with OFHEOs quarterly HPI, will be revised in later releases. For detailed information concerning the new monthly HPI, please see the HPI Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). The next release of monthly index data will be included as part of OFHEO's next quarterly HPI, released May 22, 2008. That release will include quarterly index data through the first quarter of 2008 and will report monthly estimates through March. Please e-mail [email protected] for a printed copy of this report.
