And in the Atlanta metro area the news is even better, the report shows a 2.6 percent increase, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

“The news on home prices in this report confirms recent good news about housing," said David M. Blitzer, chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. "All in all, we are more optimistic about housing. Upbeat trends continue."

The increase is the third consecutive month that prices have risen in all 20 cities according to the report.

In the Atlanta metro area, prices are still down 9.9 percent year over year.
