Home prices in the U.S. rose in May, marking the second consecutive monthly increase, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) reported Thursday. Before the string of two-month gains, FHFA’s market gauge had recorded declines in property prices for 10 straight months. The agency’s monthly House Price Index (HPI) is calculated using purchase prices of homes backing mortgages that have been sold to or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It rose 0.4 percent from April to May.
