Home prices nationwide have hit a bottom, and home values are finally on the rise.


NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- Home prices hit a bottom and are finally bouncing back, according to an industry report released Tuesday.

Nationwide, home values rose 0.2% year-over-year to a median $149,300 during the second quarter, the first annual increase since 2007, real estate listing site Zillow reported. Prices were up 2.1% from the first quarter.

Since it's passing, the     Program has gone through many changes as it sought to develop the Program     in a way that would be most effective for property owners while still     providing incentives for the actual loan owners to be willing to     participate. The most recent change took effect in March, 2012      and is commonly called HARP     2.
