The region’s average single-family home value was $305,800 at the end of the quarter, versus the national average of $169,600. Zillow said the pricing averages are derived from its Home Value Index and include all homes, and “not just those that sold in a particular period.” Zillow said Boston-area prices have slipped 23.2 percent since their peak in July 2005 and are back to where they were nearly a decade ago in June 2002.
