    The most surprising thing for me? Not a single market in NY.

    So what constitutes a median house, in terms of square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and acreage? Are we talking 3br 1.5ba split-level ranches on a postage stamp of land, or McMansions with 3-car garages and backyards that requires a ride-on mower?

    Holy crap. Makes me glad I live in the middle of nowhere, and was able to buy my house dirt cheap.

    The only city I would think would even apply would be NYC proper. And since a median house price for NYC wouldn't include apartments in Manhattan that make $835,000 look cheap, she ain't on the list.

    I believe it's the average based on Selling price, so the more higher end properties a given are has the higher the median is gonna go...
