The U.S. median home price tumbled to a two-year low in the first quarter as prices fell in almost half of U.S. cities, the National Association of Realtors said.

The median price for houses and condominiums slid 1.8 percent to $212,300 in the first three months of this year, the lowest since the first quarter of 2005 when it was $199,700, the Chicago- based real estate trade group said. The median price for a single- family home fell in 62 of the 145 metropolitan areas the group studied.
