How the Cities Did

While the overall numbers in the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices for March are down and disappointing, the pattern is not uniform.  A few cities — Washington DC and two in California — San Francisco and San Diego — remain above their recent lows. At the other end of the scale, Detroit is about 30% below its level of January, 2000.  The first table shows the peaks and troughs for the 20 cities and the two composites along with percentage losses.

For those those readers who like to keep score, the second table ranks the cities three different ways — by the month to month change, the year-over-year change and the latest index level.  The index level gives the gain or loss since January, 2000.
