First American CoreLogic, a California-based housing and finance information firm, is forecasting that home prices around the country will bottom out by spring.
And in the D-FW area, prices should be slightly positive by August, the firm's economists predict.
"In August 2010, the index is projecting that 12-month appreciation for Dallas-Plano-Irving home prices will be 0.21 percent," First American's latest report said.
That compares with a 0.12 percent decline in home prices here in the 12 months ending August 2009, the analyst said.
