Top 10 cities where home prices have improved most (or fallen least) in the past year

Image 4 of 10


Washington (+1.9%): Of all 20 cities tracked by the S&P/Case-Shiller index, the nation's capital has the distinction of seeing the highest appreciation since 2000. Sure, the recession has cut prices by nearly a third since the peak of the housing boom. But prices in 2009 actually increased 1.9 percent. And if you had bought a home in 2000, it would be worth nearly 80 percent more today -- an appreciation that's better than New York or Los Angeles.
