To find out how home values have changed in Columbus suburbs, we compared Columbus Realtors' data on median sale prices in the first quarter of 2012, when the recovery began, to last year and this year.

Because that data does not drill down into neighborhoods, we turned to Zillow for home values in pockets of Columbus. Keep in mind that Realtors' figures strictly reflect median sale prices from actual transactions, which can vary significantly based on small sample sizes. Zillow attempts to rectify that by devising an estimated median value of all homes in an area based on sales data.
