S&P/Case-Shiller index shows home prices still falling
Anyway, in November, prices fell from a month earlier in 17 of the 20 U.S. metropolitan areas tracked. The U.S. composite index showed a -0.41% drop. That's the fourth monthly decline in a row, following changes of -0.24% in October, -0.2% in September, and -0.18% in August. On a year-over-year basis, the index was still up 1.71%. However, the rate of appreciation has been slowing month-in and month-out and the gain is the smallest the group has on record (its index dates back to January 2001).
