What's Up (or Down) With the Highest-Priced Markets?

Peter Coy

I extracted this little table from a spreadsheet sent to me on Friday by This data and lots more is going to be posted on the Zillow website on Feb. 8. The first number is the Zindex--i.e., the estimated median price for all homes, not just those that were sold--in the fourth quarter of 2006. The second number is the percentage change in the Zindex from a year earlier.
