Seattle RE Price Growth A Tad Above Headline Inflation Since 1990

Chart from seattlebubble.com 28 April 2011.

Now at 4% p.a. since 1990.
CPI 3% over same period.
Will likely ‘undershoot’ inflation before this is all over.

[Hat-tip to ‘commenter-with-many-names’ for shouting this chart out.]

  1. I remember when real estate prices started collapsing in the US in 2006, yet Seattle and Portland hadn’t yet been affected…. They kept on saying… “Yes, but we’re immune because we’re different and special…”
    Funny how the same meme gets trotted here…
