Open House – What Does $241,000 Buy You Across the Country Right Now?
Housing markets across the U.S. can vary significantly when measuring median sales price, inventory, days on market and much more. As an example, the median sales price last month in the San Francisco area, according to the latest RE/MAX National Housing Report, was listed at $928,500 while metro-Tampa posted a price of $217,000 – that’s a significant difference in price.
The September 2018 RE/MAX National Housing Report noted that the median sales price among the 54 cities included in the monthly study was $241,000. So, we thought it would be interesting to see what that dollar amount buys you in different parts of the county. You may be surprised!
