Survey: U.S. and Boston still suffering housing-market blues

The latest S&P/Case-Shiller home price index is out again.

Sorry, Boston, but we’re still not out of the woods. We were among the losers in September, though not nearly to the extent felt in other cities across the nation.

Boston’s price stats: Home prices fell .77 percent in September, .05 percent over the previous three months, 1.29 percent over the past year, and 4.09 percent over the past three years. Things had looked somewhat better entering September. But the stats are stats.

File under: Holiday cheer blues

An update: OK, Boston is Boston. But the state of Massachusetts as a whole isn’t doing too bad.
