PROVIDENCE – Home prices in the Providence metro area rose slightly in July over the previous month, according to the LPS Home Price Index released Monday.

The July figure represents a 4.1 percent rise over the July 2012 home price index of $230,000, but remains 22.8 percent below peak home prices in June 2006, when the index hit $309,000.

Nationally, the property price index climbed to $231,000 in July, up 0.6 percent from $229,000 in June. On a year-over-year basis, the U.S. home price index has risen 8.7 percent, up from $212,000 in July 2012, but still 14.7 percent short of the June 2006 peak level of $270,000.
