Came across this updated Roller Coaster to the home price index. Similar to the infamous one done in 2007, this one takes us to 2010.
The original was adjusted for inflation, there is no mention if this one does or not. I am not clear on how they obtained pricing index back to 1890, Case Shiller and FHFA didn’t exist and I am not sure if they have indexed back that far – so I am not sure of the accuracy on it. It is still a good representation of the real estate market…
Updated 10/03/2011: I discovered that Case Shiller index does do back to 1890. Here is chart from http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm : (Full excel data available there).
