It is nice to see that Pittsburgh's home prices are so low. Philadelphia is not too high either.

Id be content to see San Francisco's average home price cut in half-or maybe 2 thirds.

Chicago's numbers are quite disappointing. Compared to places like LA, DC, SF, New York and even Boston Chicago is standing still. Too bad...

I am not surprise CA metro areas are on top on the list.
Phoenix is up to $216,000 as of last week.
People has to line up early in the morning to get a number.

Home prices are going up like crazy in the Phoenix area

Indy with a decrease is due to an over saturation of homes!

Pensacola is going to go nuts for the next few years... Areas devastated by hurricanes always do. if I was smart, I go buy me up a place or two up there and rent them out... If it wasn't so damn far away from Tampa, and so expensive to fly to, I probably would.

Denver Post has weekly articles on the foreclosure crisis going on the Denver Metro area, especially in Aurora. If the economy doesnt start cranking out tons of jobs in Denver the home prices might be like Indianapolis and actually drop a quarter or two.

I really think Indianapolis is a good bargain. Indianapolis has the same stuff as Minneapolis or Milwaukee and costs about 40% less than Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

Maybe this isn't a bad thing. Chicago really has never had a housing crash because the market has had a steady growth rate. Although I wouldn't mind seeing my newly constructed condo in the South Loop double in 5 years :)

Would ya look at that. Baltimore went from the lower $100,000 range all the way to almost $250,000 in just a few years. It's nice to see the city growing and having so much demand for housing, but I hope it won't be yet another spot in Maryland with exponentially rising housing values/property taxes to the point of lacking enough affordable housing.

But those other cities listed (except for Boston & DC) are limited spatially to develop. If there is one thing good about sprawl (& there certainly aren't many good things) is it opens up the housing market. That is particularly true when it comes to business relocations - cities are often chosen if they are affordable, that would make Chicago a great option when compared to the other big two.

Who knows - affordable housing might give Chicago that extra boost to make the city competitive for the future with NYC & LA.

Disappointing? So it is how considered a good thing to have housing costs completely out of reach of of the middle and/or working class? What a sad world this has become that reasonable housing costs are considered "disappointing."

Metro areas mean nothing. Major cities should be ranked seperately rather than combined metro. I look at my city Seattle and see that $299,800 is totally bs. The average price of a place in the city of Seattle is $362,000.

^Same for Atlanta. I don't consider housing price to be the sole determinant on how popular a city is with the upper-incom earners. Those who hava taken any Real Estate or Economics classes will know that a lot more goes into the price of a house besides how many rich people want to live in a city. Land availability, local laws, and supply in relation to demand are a few important factors. The most ideal city would be one like NYC or San Francisco but that had affordable housing for all. Unfortunately, the market probably would never allow that unless those two cities were located someplace like Atlanta, with plenty of room and open land.

Talk about Cali Domination! Is there any price people won't pay to live in the two West Coast Urban Oasises? How high can it go!

You have no idea how rich people are on the west coast. There is so much money out here.
