Home Price Index Shows Year-Over-Year Decline for Sixth Straight Month

Dennis Norman St Louis

A report released this morning by CoreLogic shows home prices in the U.S. declined in January by 5.7 percent from the year before, marking the sixth-consecutive month year-over-year home prices have dropped, according to their index.

The January data shows home prices continuing to slide. Mark Fleming, chief economist with CoreLogic, said, “A number of factors continue to dampen any recovery in the housing market. Negative equity, which limits the mobility of homeowners, weak demand and the overhang of shadow inventory all continue to exert downward pressure on housing prices. We are looking out for renewed demand in the coming months as the spring buying season gets underway to hopefully reduce the downward pressure.”
