As you’ve seen, the data are up and down on the state of the housing market. The Economist has done an exciting job of aggregating data from Zillow, and producing five interactive charts. The charts cover data from Q1 1980 all the way through Q2 of this year. They also address 24 major markets, and the U.S. as a whole, and encompass the housing price index, prices in real terms, price:income ratio, price:rent, and percentage change. Have fun with the data!
