Median Sales Price Appreciation Trends by City & Home Values by Bedroom Count
Median Sales Price is the price at which half the properties sold for more and half for less. It may be affected by “unusual” events or by changes in inventory and buying trends, as well as by changes in fair market value. The median sales price for an area will often conceal an enormous variety of sales prices in the underlying individual sales.
Many aspects of value cannot be adequately reflected in median and average statistics: curb appeal, age, condition, amenities, views, outdoor space, “bonus” rooms, additional parking, quality of location within the city or town, and so forth. How these statistics apply to any particular home is unknown without a specific comparative market analysis.
