Shiller Stats

The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller numbers are in for April, and Chicago home prices are slightly up from March (+ 1.1%), the first positive recording in several months. The bigger stat, however, is the year-over-year which remains 5.6% below April 2011's prices. Nationwide, the 20-city composite showed an increase of 1.3%. So yeah, we're still stuck near the bottom with places like Vegas and Atlanta. Ew. Detroit was the only city to post a decline over March. Despite our slight uptick, we remain at spring 2000 levels. Plus, the seasonally-adjusted increase is only 0.5%. Is the rebound on? The next few months will say a lot. [S & P Press Release, photo: Getty Images]
