Black Knight’s December Mortgage Report is out and the house price graphs show the west is a mess.

While much of the US is down from 2022 peaks in home price. but it is The West where home prices are down the most (just like 2008 where the Inland Empire of California, Phoenix and Las Vegas crashed in term of home prices).

At least Columbus Ohio is down only -2.1% from the 2022 peak. While Austin TX is down almost -10% from 2022 peak.

US inflation numbers are out tomorrow. Let’s check on home price and rent growth tomorrow. But the forecast for January inflation is a increase.
