Seasonal Stumble in Housing Market -Freddie Mac

The national MiMi value declined a slight 0.20 percent from December to January to stand at 74.6, indicating a weak housing market overall.  In addition to the month-over-month negative change there was a 3-month decline of -0.37 percent.  On a year-over-year basis, the U.S. housing market has improved by 3.39.
