Home prices rise for 6th straight month

MIAMI (AP) -- Home prices rose for the sixth straight month in November, fueled by tax credits for homebuyers.

The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday inched up 0.2 percent to a seasonally adjusted reading of 145.49. The index was off 5.3 percent from November last year, nearly matching analysts' estimates that it would fall by 5.1 percent.
