Analyst Opinion of Case-Shiller HPI

Please note from the authors:

Please note that transaction records for July 2020 for Wayne County, MI are now available. Due to delays at the local recording office caused by the COVID-19 lockdown, S&P Dow Jones Indices and CoreLogic were previously unable to generate a valid July 2020 update of the Detroit S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller indices.

However, there are not a sufficient number of records for the month of August for Detroit. Since Wayne is the most populous county in the Detroit metro area, S&P Dow Jones Indices and CoreLogic are unable to generate a valid Detroit index value for the October release. When the sale transactions data fully resumes and sufficient data is collected, the Detroit index values for the month(s) with missing updates will be calculated.

All home price indices are now showing home price growth is accelerating year-over-year. At this point, it looks like the pandemic has little affected home prices (or sales for that matter).
