Ok, so I’ve been on a bit of a Case Shiller tear for the past month (here, here, here, here and here) but deservedly so. Today’s release covers the same window of information released by MRIS/RBI last January.

The Case Shiller Analysis Paralysis

June 24, 2011  |  by Jonathan Miller

Every day, it seems, a new report is released on the state of the housing market. It’s up, it’s down. It’s good, it’s bad, and it’s confusing. For most people, even with access to all this information, the results are more inconsistent than ever, often dated and out of context. But they don’t have to be. This is a rant:... Continue Reading

June 17, 2011  |  by Jonathan Miller

Using RBI’s robust market data, I set out to provide some context for state of the Washington, DC metro area housing market today by showing how we got here.

Metro DC/Case Shiller Disconnect (Part I of III): Timing

June 2, 2011  |  by Jonathan Miller

Timing This is the first of a three part series on the disconnect between the Case Shiller Index for DC and what is happening in the current market.

NAR Pending Home Sales Jump 34.1% In March As DC Outperforms Nation

April 29, 2011  |  by Jonathan Miller

The National Association of Realtors released their Pending Home Sales Index that showed a 5.1% increase in contract signings. However, this number doesn’t reflect what is actually happening because they adjust for seasonality. And unless you’ve been living in a dark cave for the past year, you’ll know that the federal homebuyers tax credit wreaked havoc on the housing stats... Continue Reading
