Recent = (1) of the immediate past or just previous to the present time: ‘In recent months house prices have fallen.’ ‘In recent years the crime rate has increased.’ (2) new, fresh: ‘A recent addition to the publication.’ ‘Recent graduates’

When you mention a number, use last (NOT recent): ‘Over the last 12 months house price have fallen.’
