What is The Case-Shiller Index saying about San Francisco Real Estate?

Posted on Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 at 8:49pm.

The Case-Shiller Index for March just came out and showed a big jump, just beginning to reflect the surge in appreciation we've been experiencing in 2013. (January and February) Index reading mostly refect sales in late 2012.) The March reading was 3.5% higher than February (last month) and 15% higher than March 2012.

In Index for the 5-County SF Metro Area, not just for the city of San Francisco, and since it refects a 3-month rolling average, is published 2 months later and sales close 4-8 weeks after the offers are negotiated, it is typically 3-5 months behind the actual market on the street. I would expect anothe significant jump in next months Index.
