Yesterday I took some data from RMLS Market Action to see if it gave any indicator of what today’s Case Shiller report would look like and also reposted two articles written in advance of today’s report. Nothing stood out from the graphs but one comment reminds us about the difference in methodology. This links to Case Shiller’s methodology.
It’s 6:15 AM and the report is not posted on the Standard & Poor’s website so I’m going to go make another cup of coffee…
…The press release is online now but the spreadsheet data is not. Portland’s housing market took a slight dip, along with about half of the markets reported in the Index. 149.72 is .5% off August’s reported level. Overall the national real estate market continued to climb.
I’ll post this now and come back later with some graphs.
