Home price growth slowed to just 2.5% year-over-year in April, the slowest growth in over six years.

The numbers: The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city index was unchanged in April compared to March on a seasonally adjusted basis, and was 2.5% higher compared to a year ago. That was the 13th straight month in which annual growth slowed, and the lowest pace of annual price gains since August 2012.

What happened: Home prices continue to rise, but at a much slower pace. The cities with the strongest annual gains are still those in warm climates which were among the areas hardest-hit by the housing crisis: Las Vegas, Tampa, and Phoenix.
