Metro Area Median Home Prices Ranked 2005

Median Home Prices by MSA ranked.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Single-home price growth over the 12 months ending June 30 was the strongest in history, according to the National Association of Realtors.

Link: http://money.cnn.com/pf/features/li...rice.html#table

The list in the link above includes duplications of Metro Areas and Metro Divisions, in particular with New York City and Los Angeles.

The list below includes only traditional MSAs with over 500,000 residents based on 2004 U.S. Census Bureau estimates.

Twelve MSAs over 500,000 were not included and no explanation was given. Perhaps this is due to latest data not available.

Those MSAs over 500,000 not included (listed in order of population size) are:

San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA
Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC
Fresno, CA
Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA
Bakersfield, CA
Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, NY
McAllen-Edinburgh-Pharr, TX
Stockton, CA
Scranton-Wilkes Barre, PA
Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL
Harrisburg-Carlisle, PA
Augusta, GA

The remainder of MSAs over 500,000 are ranked below by median home price.

* Please note that median home price differs from average home price as the median price means that half the homes are worth more and half the homes are worth less, whereas average includes the value of all homes divided by number of homes.

Wow. Upstate NY is really cheap. Maybe even too cheap. I always knew that though. People for lack of a better word, "bitch" about how high the taxes are and how unaffordable it is to live there. Look at how cheap the houses are you little whiners. Shut up.

Neither Mobile or Montgomery have an MSA population over 500,000. The list only includes Metro areas over 500k.

I always wonder how Chicago housing is so cheap. It just doesnt seem like the average house in Baltimore, for example, should cost more than the average hoouse in Chicago.

If Chicago was located in the BoWash corridor, I wonder how much the average house would cost then.

Milwaukee's ranking surprised me (I thought it would lower). #30? On the list, it's not near cities you'd normally compare it with.

i saw on the Weather Channel when Hurricane Katrina was coming and it showed the population density for the coastal areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. it showed Mobile's metro area at 559,000. my city definitely has a metro of over 500,000. look at wikipedia.org or emporis.com and see for yourself.

^That's the Mobile Combined Statistical Area, which I am guessing is Mobile and Baldwin counties. If it ranked CSA's over 500,000, Huntsville would be on there as well (Hsv and Decatur have a CSA of 510,000)

maybe with just Daphne, Spanish Fort, and Fairhope combine with Mobile. Not all of Baldwin County is included. The metro would larger by a good amount, but i didn't know Huntsville had a big metro area. Birmingham is on the list. how neglectfull of CNN to rid the other 3 bama cities.

Mobile MSA includes only Mobile County with 400,526 people based on the 2004 Census Bureau Estimate.

Mobile's Median Home Price as of 6-30-05 was $129,100 and Montgomery was $133,300.

Agreed. . BTW, Huntsville's median home price in June was $126,900. That would make us #70 on the list.

If interest rates stay stable, I expect DFW, and Houston to skyrocket in the next 5-7 years. Just a hunch.....

Hartford, CT suprised me at $257K, we always were known to be a much cheaper area to buy a home than the two expensive giants (Boston and NYC). And we are really more expensive than Philadelphia and Minneapolis (which I heard isn't cheap) and barely less than Chicago.

I think they put too much of the rich suburbs in this, because there are probably few houses at that expense in Hartford proper. Or that the Hartford area is getting more demand since it is so much cheaper than the some of other cities in the area.

I hope it never reaches the level of Stamford (nearly half a mill). But 21 is still very high on that list.

You have to remember one reason that the prices of homes in stamford is relatively high is because of the rail connections (metro-north, amtrak), and they have a large number of Business and Corporations from manhattan who either have secondary offices there, or have moved their offices there over the past 30 years. (and their proximity to greenwich also)
