In today's September 2009 S&P/Case-Shiller the uptick continued to flatten. Overall Los Angeles (including Orange County) was up 0.85% from August (compared with 1.6% from July), and is now down 38.7% from its September 2006 peak, at October 2003 levels. The national (orange line, their original 10-city Composite) index is down 29.9% from its peak in June 2006.
I've been reporting the Low, Middle, and High tiers; unfortunately those are no longer available without registration, so may not be updated going forward. I now have two columns on the chart: left is peak to bottom, right is peak to current month.
As I've been writing, I don't see this indicating a bottom on the Westside, which appears lagging the Case-Shiller for Los Angeles. My updated North of Montana Index has another year to go to hit my projection of 2003 prices in 2010, but is consistent with Case-Shiller's reversion to 2003 prices. The new 11/20/09 sale of 626 11th Street (although not on 9th-10th-12th-Euclid) was a third at $1.6M this year.
Finally, here is updated the Los Angeles Case-Shiller index scaled with the Los Angeles DataQuick median price history (normalized Case-Shiller's January 2000 = 100).
