U.S. Home Prices Rise In Aug, Yearly Gain Best Since 2006: S
U.S. single-family home prices rose in August and also posted their strongest annual gain in more than seven years, a closely watched survey showed on Tuesday. The S&P/Case Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas rose 0.9 percent on a seasonally adjusted basis, beating economists’ expectation of a 0.6 percent gain. The August price gains came despite a rise that month in 30-year mortgage rates that slowed mortgage applications and refinancing activity. The report suggested the housing sector continued to recover despite those headwinds.
