As previously reported, there have lately been some surprises in local housing data, such as Cambridge home prices recently falling.

But here’s some more curious news (or maybe not so curious): South Boston home prices were up last month 9 percent compared to the year prior (no mention if it was partly driven by Seaport sales). Indeed, the Herald found prices up in 12 of 15 towns/neighborhoods that it surveyed.

Milton was up 7 percent. Trendy hip Jamaica Plain was down 9 percent. The ending of the home tax-credit last year can’t explain the discrepancies, can it?
