While Atlanta home prices are on the rise, they're a far cry from San Francisco's inventory, where the median home price is $1,150,000. Teachers, astronauts, firefighters and restaurant servers are all priced out of this market.
On the converse, Detroit offers the most selection for the average homebuyer. Restaurant servers, earning the least of the occupations, can afford 75 percent of the homes in this market.
