I love these two charts – they are so instructive in so many ways. They really invite closer study as to why some cities have recovered so strongly, and why others have failed to.

The first 4 cities in the % from Bubble peaks are Las Vegas, Phoenix, Miami, and Tampa. These cities saw huge booms in housing but without a proportional accompaniment increase in economic activity. Especially in terms of the jobs creation that would allow people to pay those cheap mortgages which supported those elevated prices.

    The market is definitely hotting up here in southern New Hampshire. I’m running two renovation jobs now, and I’m having a much harder time finding people to work. Heck I can’t even get people to return my phone calls. I suspect I’m being outbid. It feels like 2006 all over again.

      Scone,, same on the Left Coast. Trouble is a lot of skilled contractors went bankrupt and “gave it up” in 2008 and now there is a shortage of workers. But I would like to know where Case-Shiller get their numbers from. I can tell you for a first hand fact that the hit in Portland was more like 30%, not 13%, but the return up is accurate at 26%. We haven’t hit the all time high yet, but getting there.

    When you get lower percentage of households owning, you will have much lower inventory for sale too. And that is what’s happening, lower inventories.

    When will Holman Jenkins and the the WSJ admit they were wrong about their ridiculous editorials about bulldozing all the empty houses in America, among others?

    I guess Rupert Murdoch’s WSJ doesn’t care about being accountable.
