A new report shows home prices continue to see an uneven recovery for 2009.

Tuesday's report shows the Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index is up 3.4 percent from its bottom in May.

The numbers from October are down 7.3 percent from last year.

"The turnaround in home prices seen in the spring and summer has faded," said David Blitzer, chairman of the Index Committee at Standard & Poor's, in a statement.

"Coming after a series of solid gains, these data are likely to spark worries that home prices are about to take a second dip," he said.

Only 11 of the 20 major cities tracked saw growth. San Francisco and Detroit posted the largest increases while Tampa, Fla. and Chicago posted the largest declines.
