OFHEO has a great data series. It only tracks sales of the same exact home over time, which is a lot better for comparing apple and apples. The only question we've been able to throw up on this one is whether it accounts for home improvements and additions in the same home -- they probably check square footage and dump out any that changed, but home improvements happen, especially on homes that sell, so these appreciation numbers may be a bit higher than the true appreciation of the core home and land itself.

Case/Shiller is slightly better in that regard:

But both of them lag the market by several months, so they're kind of backward looking.
