WASHINGTON -- Home prices rose for the second straight month in most major U.S. cities and are stabilizing after years of declines, while prices in Detroit, Las Vegas and Tampa, Fla. -- three cities hit hardest by the housing crisis -- fell to their lowest points since the recession began.

Analysts say the overall upswing in prices hardly signals a rebound for the troubled housing market. A flurry of spring buyers is helping boost sales. At the same time, millions of foreclosures are in limbo, awaiting the results of a government investigation into improper practices by mortgage lenders. Once that probe is complete, banks will resume seizing homes and prices will likely fall again.
