Mixed results for House Price Indexes

The slight decline in the FHFA HPI (NSA) in November was the result of continued weakness in the Mountain division (which is dominated by the problem states of Arizona and Nevada), with a 3.7 percent decline. This offset gains of 0.75 percent in the East South Central division (Tennessee and Alabama), 0.65 percent in the West South Central division (dominated by Texas) and 0.63 percent in the Pacific division (dominated by California).
