New York City-area home prices remained relatively flat in January, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, released today. The report, which does not take condominium or co-op units into account, shows a 0.9 percent drop in home prices month-over-month (see full report below). Prices are down 3 percent from the same time period a year ago. This performance is in line with the overall momentum in the housing market nationwide. The index’s 20-city composite dropped 1 percent month-over-month and declined 3.1 percent from January 2010. David Blitzer, chairman of S&P’s Index Committee, said that the data show a protracted real estate slump. “The housing market recession is not yet over, and none of the statistics are indicating any form of sustained recovery,” Blitzer said. “At most, we have seen all statistics bounce along their troughs; at worst, the feared double-dip recession may be materializing.” TRD
