Starting in March, Detroit’s listing prices (a.k.a “asking prices”) began rising in our weekly numbers, with a full-fledged upswing by the summer months:

Listing Prices: Detroit MSA Housing Market (January 2011 - October 2011)

As reported in DSNews about today’s Case-Shiller numbers – Detroit and Washington D.C. were the only two cities to see positive annual returns of +2.7 percent and +0.3 percent, respectively.

Just last week, our very own Jon Sterling pointed to Detroit as a top investor market based on our October National Housing Report.
