Analyst Opinion of Case-Shiller HPI

Please note from the authors:

Please note that transaction records for December 2020 for Wayne County, MI, are now available. Due to delays at the local recording office caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, S&P DJI and CoreLogic were previously unable to generate a valid December 2020 update for the Detroit S&P CoreLogic CaseShiller Indices.

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