This chart shows the contribution of the residential real estate spread to the CFSI. This spread is measured as the difference between the price of residential property (S&P/Case-Shiller National Home Price Index) and 20-Year US Treasury. It captures the risk associated with investing in residential real estate relative to a risk free instrument.
