(See recent posts on Phoenix Case-Shiller Home Price Index.)

The Case-Shiller index of home prices is the best measure of home price appreciation when looking at entire metropolitan areas in the United States. It doesn’t measure appreciation in smaller areas such as cities or zip codes, however.

The Case-Shiller home price index for metro Phoenix fell 0.8% in July and was 7.3% below the peak home price in June 2006.
