Home sales could be improving in a handful of major cities

The housing slump is deepening, spreading and showing little sign of letting up. But home sale transactions in December picked up a bit in Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Sacramento and San Diego, according to the March 3 RPX Monthly Housing Report, which measures the average price per square foot for houses in the top 25 cities.

“We’re not saying the housing market is bottoming out,” said Jonathan Miller who is research director for New York City-based Radar Logic, which puts out the RPX housing report. “Transaction counts in a handful of markets we are tracking stabilized and, based on past experience, could portend price stabilization in the future.”

If you’re selling a home in any of these markets, don’t get too excited. Miller says that if he’s right, home prices in these cities would only start stabilizing in about 15 months.
