Local house price gains getting gaudy

There's no sign of weakness yet in local home prices, according to research firm CoreLogic. In fact, we may be getting slightly frothy for a market that supposedly doesn't see the extremes of cities such as Miami or Vegas. February prices of non-distressed properties clocked in 9.2 percent higher than the mark of the year before, up from 6.3 percent in January. Throw in distressed homes and the increase was 'only' 7 percent. The national numbers are equally impressive.
