Good news for NYC

As we all know, it is very difficult to look at the national real estate market and make decisions on selling and or purchasing based on the national market. That being said......here is a positive article on NYC.....NOT the rest of the country.Home Prices Fall by Record AmountBut a possible bright spot in an otherwise dismal report, seven metros - Tampa (Florida), Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York, Dallas and Atlanta - showed smaller annual declines.By J.W. ELPHINSTONE,APPosted: 2008-07-29 09:36:59NEW YORK (July 29) - Home prices tumbled by the steepest rate ever in May, according to a closely watched housing index released Tuesday, as the housing slump deepened in the U.S.The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city index dropped by 15.8 percent in May compared with a year ago, a record decline since its inception in 2000. The 10-city index plunged 16.9 percent, its biggest decline in its 21-year history.

No city in the Case-Shiller 20-city index saw price gains in May, the second straight month that's happened. The monthly indices have not recorded an overall home price increase in any month since August 2006.

Home values have fallen 18.4 percent since the 20-city index's peak in July 2006.

Nine metropolitan cities - Las Vegas, Miami, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Tampa, Fla. - posted record lows in May. And the value of housing in Detroit is now lower than it was in 2000.

But a possible bright spot in an otherwise dismal report, seven metros - Tampa (Florida), Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York, Dallas and Atlanta - showed smaller annual declines.

Las Vegas recorded the worst drop, with prices plunging 28.4 percent in the month. Miami came in a close second, with prices down 28.3 percent.

Charlotte, North Carolina, posted the smallest drop at 0.2 percent. Until April, the North Carolina city had been the last metro still showing price gains.
