Ranking the Cities

For those keeping score, the table shows how the twenty cities ranked in the November numbers by the current index — which shows the gain or loss in the last 12 years – the peak index and the depths of the drop from the peak.  Note that in the last column the city ranked 20th, Las Vegas, had the deepest drop while the city where you would want to be a property owner was ranked #1 — Dallas — for the smallest peak to trough collapse.  Miami had the highest peak and has retained a lot of the gains it made despite being 18th in the plunge category; it has the 6th highest index currently.  Washington DC remains one of the best all-around spots with the highest current index and the third highest peak while its fall was in the middle of the pack.
