WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new government report says U.S. home prices marked a quarterly decline for the first time in 13 years in the third quarter. The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight says home prices dipped four-tenths of a percent nationwide in the July-September period, compared with the previous quarter. Compared with the third quarter of 2006, the agency's index of U.S home prices rose 1.8 percent. It is the smallest year-over-year increase since 1995. Many of the cities and states experiencing the sharpest declines in the quarter had posted the sharpest increases a couple of years ago during the housing boom. Price declines were steepest in California, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada and Rhode Island.
