DALLAS - Dallas bumped its home price gains up 8.9 percent from a year ago in the just released Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller Home Price Index.
The year-over-year increase in Dallas in August was the highest in almost six months.
The Dallas area was among the top five U.S. cities that had the greatest home price appreciation in Case-Shiller's monthly survey.
"Home prices continue to climb at a 4 percent to 5 percent annual rate across the country," says S&P's David M. Blitzer.
"Most other recent housing indicators also show strength."
