Prices of Portland homes fell to new lows in March, according to a nationwide survey released Tuesday.

Portland was one of five markets to see the decline. The others were: Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and New York.

According to a release, this is an improvement compared to last month's numbers when nine cities had seen lower numbers.

Three of the Case-Shiller composite numbers reached the lowest levels seen since the housing crisis began in 2006, the report said.

Seven cities saw positive change: Charlotte, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis and Phoenix.
