US Housing Market still failing to make a marked recovery

The latest Chief Economist's Weekly Brief form National Westminster Bank suggests that the large supply of housing stock, compared with falling demand, will continue to ‘weigh the market down’ and  cause a ‘drag’ on  the general economic recovery happening within the US.  This is evidenced  by US house prices falling by 0.5% m/m in November (1.6%y/y) bringing them down to 2003 levels. This is 30% below the peak and only 3% above the 2009 trough.
