DALLAS-FORT WORTH - Dallas-area home prices are hanging onto their big gains in the latest nationwide comparison, as prices were up 9 percent from a year ago in the new Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller Home Price Index.
That is almost twice the nationwide gain of 4.9 percent in September compared with the same month in 2014.
Local home price increases have averaged close to 9 percent through the first nine months of 2015, according to Case-Shiller.
Dallas' 9 percent increase was fourth highest among the 20 major markets Case-Shiller tracks for its monthly report.
Dallas-area home prices are at an all-time high as local prices have jumped more than 35 percent since early 2012.
