Dear Person,What use can I make out of the data showing changes in home values? Thanks.Again, historical changes in housing prices do not predict future changes. For example, if a home has appreciated in value 40% over the past 5 years and 10% over the past year, is that better than a home whose value has appreciated 90% over the past 5 years but 0% over the past year? If this data is not used predictively, what is it's value or intended use?Thanks very much.D.
