Case-Shiller shows home prices rise again

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)
U.S. home prices rose in September for the sixth month, signaling that the housing market is "in the midst of a recovery," according to the S&P/Case-Shiller home-price index released Tuesday
The S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city composite posted a 0.3% increase in September following a 0.8% gain in August
Home prices are up 3% from the prior year
"We are entering the seasonally weak part of the year
Despite the seasons, housing continues to improve," said David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices
Among the 20 cities tracked by the index, 13 posted monthly gains in September
Tuesday's report on home prices is the latest news on a strengthening housing market
There have also been recent gains in new construction, home-builder sentiment, and existing-home sales
However, while persistently low mortgage rates are attracting some buyers, consumers still face tight credit standards, and officials say factors such as tight lending terms will block a powerful housing recovery
Indeed, despite recent gains, prices are about 30% below peak levels in 2006, according to Case-Shiller data
