In September, the average price of a single-family home rose 0.7% from August and 13.3% from a year ago reported S&P/Case-Shiller. In August, the average price has risen 12.8% from a year earlier. The average price is now down 19.8% from its prior peak in July 2006. The increase in September was slightly higher than expected by market forecasters. It had fallen 33.4% to a trough in March 2001 and is now up 20.4% from that market bottom. So prices have recovered almost half the decline. All of the 20 cities in the index showed an increase in year-over-year prices, led by gains of 29.1% in Las Vegas and 25.7% in San Francisco. The smallest gain was in New York City, which showed a 4.3% advance.
