Here's a pretty amazing stat, courtesy of Zillow.

No town or city in Greater Boston - and across the entire state as well - saw home values decline over the last year.

Zillow compared median home values in the third quarter - July, August and September -  to the same period in 2012.

In fact, Boston metro values rose 10.2 percent year-over-year in the third quarter, to a median value of $343,200. (Zillow looks not just at prices, but at assessments as well.)

Overall, Boston area home values are just 9.6 percent below their 2005 peak.

In fact, three communities saw 20-percent plus increases in home values during the quarter ending September compared to the year before.

Up in the Merrimack Valley, Groveland led the charge with a 23.4 percent gain, followed by Northhampton at 20 percent and Salem at 17.5 percent.

Happy Friday!
