As welcome news to homeowners, yesterday, Standard & Poor’s posted the MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area) for March 2019 illuminating another uptick in the market after a steady four-month decline. This is the second month in a row showing rising values since the low in January 2019. This latest data point in March puts home values slightly ahead of where they were in April of 2018.

The monthly S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Home Price Indices uses the “repeat sales method” of index calculation – an approach that is widely recognized as the premiere methodology for indexing housing prices – which incorporates data on properties that have sold at least twice, in order to capture the true appreciated value of each specific sales unit.

Our Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), is comprised of home sales in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties.
