So what does the data tell us? Well, the data above does not reveal a consistent pattern. Early in the year (January and February 2006), home prices were up year-over-year in the range of 12% to 24%. However, prices were down 2% to 17% during March and April 2006, compared to the same time last year. And then, for the last three months (May, June and July 2006), moderate price gains were observed ranging from 1% to 10%. Given the ups and down described above, a longer period of evaluation is needed to determine if a clear pattern emerges.
