Dallas-area Home Price Gains No. 4 Nationwide

 

The Dallas region’s home price gains continue to rank among the hottest in the country, posting an 8.3 percent increase year-over-year in the new Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-market comparison. Dallas trailed only Portland, Seattle and Denver in the latest index of rising home values.

 

Nationally, the 20 largest metropolitan cities saw home prices rise 5.1 percent from last year. Dallas was one of 14 cities to post year-over-year gains higher than the national average. Portland and Seattle recorded double-digit increases in July from a year earlier — 12.4 percent and 11.2 percent, respectively.

 

Dallas home prices have been rising between 8 percent and 10 percent annually for more than a year in the Case-Shiller survey. Local prices are at record levels in the widely watched index and are up more than 25 percent from 2007.
