As expected, the house price collapse has led to an increase in real estate and housing ETFs.

In the early hours of trading on Tuesday, exchange-traded funds related to the housing and real estate sectors increased after a new report revealed that although home prices continued to decline, analysts had anticipated a downturn.

The Case-Shiller index data for November showed a decrease in home prices for 20 cities for the fifth consecutive month. This happened at the same time as the fall that economists had foreseen.

iShares U.S. Real Estate ETF (NYSEARCA):IYR and Vanguard Real Estate Index Fund (NYSEARCA:VNQ), three broad-spectrum real estate ETFs that offer exposure to U.S. stock REITs and real estate companies, all increased by more than 0.9%.

ETFs focused on homebuilders and residential real estate funds both saw advances at the same time. Among them are the iShares U.S. Home Construction ETF (ITB) (+2.8%), SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (XHB) (+2.6%), iShares Residential and Multisector Real Estate ETF (REZ) (+1.3%), and iShares Mortgage Real Estate Capped ETF (BATS: REM) (+1.6%).

Shares of PulteGroup (PHM), which is among both exchange-traded funds’ top five holdings, include well-known names like ITB and XHB. PHM began the day up 8.1%.
