D-FW Home-Price Gains Peak, Slow


Prices of pre-owned homes in the Dallas area hit another peak in July, but annual increases continued to slow, according to the just-released Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index. Dallas home prices increased 7.4 percent year over year — the lowest rate of advance in approximately a year.


The Dallas price index hit a new high for the sixth-straight month and is nearly 12 percent ahead of June 2007, just before the worldwide economic collapse. Denver was the only other U.S. city to set a new high in the much-anticipated report.
