Home values were down on a yearly basis in August, but showed relative stability in the near term, according to indices that track home values nationwide.

Home values fell 4.5 percent year over year in August, to $172,600, and remained essentially flat compared to July, according to the Zillow Home Value Index, released today. CoreLogic’s Home Price Index showed a similar drop year over year, down 4.4 percent, with month-to-month prices also remaining virtually flat.
