U.S. home prices up compared with a year ago

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. home prices jumped 10.9 percent in March compared with a year ago, the most since April 2006.

A growing number of buyers are bidding on a tight supply of homes, driving prices higher and helping the housing market recover.

The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index released Monday also showed that all 20 cities measured posted annual gains for the third straight month.

And prices rose in 15 cities in March from February. That's up from only 11 in the previous month.

Annual prices rose in Phoenix by 22.5 percent, the biggest gain among cities. It was followed by San Francisco (22.2 percent) and Las Vegas (20.6 percent).

New York City had the smallest annual increase, at 2.6 percent. It was followed by Cleveland with 34.8 percent.
