The pace of Dallas-area home price growth cooled by a fraction in the latest measure. Still, Dallas had one of the highest home price increases in the country, according to Standard and Poor’s/Case-Shiller Home Price Index. North Texas prices rose 7.8 percent in May from a year earlier, the closely watch report shows. That increase ranked fourth in the country behind Seattle (13.3 percent), Portland (8.9 percent) and Denver (7.9 percent). Nationwide home prices in May were up 5.6 percent from a year earlier.
