The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday posted a 0.6 percent increase in July from June and was up 3.2 percent from a year ago. Twelve cities showed monthly gains. Seven recorded declines. Cleveland's prices were flat.

Home sales were boosted by now-expired tax credits. The housing market has weakened since and price declines are expected in many markets into next year.
