Summary Box: Home prices down in most US cities

HOME PRICES DROP: U.S. home prices are falling again in most major cities after small gains over the summer and spring. Prices dropped in 17 of the 20 cities tracked by the Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller index in September from August.

BIGGEST CHANGES: The biggest declines were in Atlanta, San Francisco and Tampa, Fla. New York, Portland, Ore., and Washington were the only cities to show gains.

OUTLOOK: The report suggests the troubled housing market remains weak and won't recover any time soon.
