COLLEGE STATION (Real Estate Center) – Texas ranked fifth nationally in home price appreciation for April, according to CoreLogic's latest home price index report. At the city level, two Texas metros topped the list.

Statewide, prices appreciated 8.3 percent year over year, putting Texas behind South Carolina (11.4 percent), Colorado (9.7 percent), Washington (9.1 percent) and Florida (9 percent). Data include distressed sales.

Meanwhile, Dallas-Plano-Irving topped U.S. metros in price appreciation with a 10.3 percent year-over-year increase (including distressed properties). Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land was right behind at 9.5 percent. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale ranked third with 7.8 percent.
