Median Home Price by State 

One way to get an idea about the cost of living in a state is to look at its Median Home Price. The median home price is measured by lining up the house sales of that state in numerical order, from lowest to highest, and then finding the number that is directly in the middle of that list. It splits the distribution neatly into two parts: houses that cost above the median home price of a state, and houses that cost less than the median income of a state.

In 2021, the median home price in the United States was $377,700. However, by the end of March, in 2022, the median home price had jumped up to $428,700. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic from 2020—2022, the median price of homes in the United States increased 30% in two years. However, recently in July 2022 a national measure of house prices across 20 major cities found house prices fell by 0.44%, the first drop since March 2012.
