The median home list price – the midway point of all the houses or units listed over a period of time – is used more often in this report instead of the average home list price because experts say the median offers a more accurate view of what’s happening in a market. In finding the average price, all prices of homes listed are added and then divided by the number of homes sold. This measure can be skewed by one low or high price.
