The median price is considered the best reflection of what consumers will find in the marketplace. Median price indicates that half the homes were priced above and half below the midpoint. An average number can be distorted by a few wildly expensive or very inexpensive home sales.

Steep changes in home prices may reflect the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the housing market beginning in March 2020. Median home prices recorded from March 1, 2019 to February 29, 2020 rose by 2.9 percent in Rockdale County compared with the previous 12 months.
