National home prices posted their sixth consecutive monthly decline in January, falling 1 percent from December and 3.1 percent from a year ago, according to data aggregator CoreLogic.

CoreLogic Chief Economist Mark Fleming said in a statement that home prices aren’t falling as hard as they did at the peak of the housing downturn, and are "not far from the bottom."

National home prices posted their sixth consecutive monthly decline in January, falling 1 percent from December and 3.1 percent from a year ago, according to data aggregator CoreLogic.

CoreLogic Chief Economist Mark Fleming said in a statement that home prices aren’t falling as hard as they did at the peak of the housing downturn, and are "not far from the bottom."

When distressed sales are excluded, national home prices were down 0.9 percent year over year, but up 0.7 percent from December to January.

The picture varied greatly from market to market. Among the top 100 metro areas by population, 71 showed year-over-year declines in January, eight fewer than in December, CoreLogic said.

At the state level, 18 saw stable or appreciating home values over the last year, including South Dakota (5.7 percent), North Dakota (4 percent), West Virginia (4 percent), Montana (3.6 percent), and Michigan (3 percent).
