Home prices continue to fall in the Northwest. New figures released show yet another drop in both Seattle and Portland.

The S&P/Case-Schiller Index measures housing prices in 20 large metropolitan areas around the country. The newest figures are through January and in them, both Seattle and Portland hit new lows for the current economic downturn. Average home prices in both cities are down about four percent from a year ago. Steve Thoele is an agent with Keller-Williams Realty in Portland. He blogs about housing trends in Oregon.

One of my favorite bands, Real Estate stopped by NPR to perform a three-song Tiny Desk Concert.  Real Estate’s latest album Days has been on repeat for me since its release from Domino Records last fall.  For being a surf-rock, lo-fi, breezy pop kind of band this album fits perfectly with a crisp autumn or winter day.
