November Case-Shiller Index Released

The Case-Shiller Index just released their November report, which is reflected in the two charts below. Remember that this is for the top third of sales price-wise in the 5-county San Francisco “metro statistical area.” The city of San Francisco has recovered more quickly and dramatically than the 5-county area as a whole.

Each month, Case-Shiller recalculates the price ranges of the low, middle and top tiers (thirds) of sales by the number of units sold. One indication of what has happened over the past year is that in December of 2011, the top third (“High-Tier”) of sales started at a sales price of $573,000; in November 2012, the top third of sales started at $685,000.
