CoreLogic has released its November Home Price Index (HPI) report which shows that home prices in the U.S. decreased 1.4 percent on a month-over-month basis, the fourth consecutive monthly decline. According to the CoreLogic HPI, national home prices, including distressed sales, also declined by 4.3 percent on a year-over-year basis in November 2011 compared to November 2010. This follows a decline of 3.7 percent in October 2011 compared to October 2010. Excluding distressed sales, year-over-year prices declined by 0.6 percent in November 2011 compared to November 2010 and by 1.6* percent in October 2011 compared to October 2010. Distressed sales include short sales and real estate-owned (REO) transactions. “With one month of data left to report, it appears that the healthy, non-distressed market will be very modestly down in 2011. Distressed sales continue to put downward pressure on prices, and is a factor that must be addressed in 2012 for a housing recovery to become a reality,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. Highlights of CoreLogic's November 2011 report include: ►Including distressed sales, the five states with the highest appreciation were: Vermont (+4.3 percent), South Carolina (+2.8 percent), District of Columbia (+2.1 percent), Nebraska (+1.9 percent) and New York (+1.7 percent). ►Including distressed sales, the five states with the greatest depreciation were: Nevada (-11.2 percent), Illinois (-9.7 percent), Minnesota (-7.8 percent), Georgia (-7.7 percent) and Ohio (-7.2 percent). ►Excluding distressed sales, the five states with the highest appreciation were: Maine (+4.9 percent), South Carolina (+4.9 percent), Montana (+3.8 percent), Indiana (+3.3 percent) and Louisiana (+2.4 percent). ►Excluding distressed sales, the five states with the greatest depreciation were: Nevada (-8.8 percent), Arizona (-4.9 percent), Minnesota (-4.7 percent), Idaho (-4.1 percent) and Georgia (-3.6 percent). ►Including distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change in the national HPI (from April 2006 to November 2011) was -32.8 percent. Excluding distressed transactions, the peak-to-current change in the HPI for the same period was -23.1 percent. ►Of the top 100 Core Based Statistical Areas (CBSAs) measured by population, 77 are showing year-over-year declines in November, three fewer than in October.
