TORONTO, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Canadian home prices rose in September and the pace of 12-month home price appreciation accelerated, the Teranet-National Bank Composite House Price Index showed on Wednesday.
The index, which measures price changes for repeat sales of single-family homes, showed national home prices rose 0.3 percent last month, exceeding the historical average for September.
Prices were up 5.4 percent from a year earlier, a pickup from August's 5.0 percent price gain. (Reporting by Andrea Hopkins, Editing by Franklin Paul)
