Housing markets remain deeply depressed, as the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices show. September data, released Tuesday, show that prices continue to drift lower, with three cities posting new index lows, as real estate markets remain unable to shrug off a massive inventory of foreclosed homes and a weak economy.
National home prices fell at an annual rate of 3.9% in the third quarter, as real estate markets tread even lower. The decline appears to be decelerating, as Q2 prices fell 5.8% on an annual basis while Q3 inched up sequentially 0.1%.

Daily Real Estate News | Monday, November 28, 2011
The number of homes listed for sale in October reached its lowest level in more than four years, according to MLS data compiled by Realtor.com.
About 2.12 million homes were listed for sale nationwide last month, which is down by 3.5 percent from September. And at year-over-year levels, that number is down by 21 percent.
Inventories are declining due to banks taking longer to process foreclosures and sellers taking their home off the market after seeing their properties linger or getting low-ball offers from buyers, according to Zelman & Associates.
In October, housing inventories declined the most in:
- Portland, Ore.: -6.9 percent
- Seattle: -5.3%
