Home prices continued to rise this spring, but the pace of increase has slowed since late last year.
The S&P/Case-Shiller home price index, a closely watched measure of home values. posted a 9.3% annual increase in its May reading, down from the 10.8% rate in April. The rate of increase was as high as 13.7% in November before slowing every month since.
The good news for homeowners is that the index has now been up every month over the last two years -- after posting drops almost every month over the previous five years.
