Median Home Values
Applying the House Price Index growth from FHFA to the latest housing data from the American Community Survey (ACS), we calculated a median home value for 3,119 counties and county-equivalents in the United States. Home values represent the value of all homes instead of home sales.
Nationwide, we estimated that the price of a typical home was $213,099 in the second quarter of 2017. Based on our estimates, 85 percent of counties had a lower median home value than the national level.
Here is the list of the counties with the highest median home values:
