According to a recent Trulia blog, the “average” house in every state looks quite different. Trulia researchers based their list off of the median list prices in each state and gathered top homes on Trulia’s online listing. Nationwide, the median list price is $289,000.

Wondering how some other states compare to the national average? According to the Trulia coverage, this is what average looks like in other states:


In the Peach State, the average house has a list price of $265,000. And while that money barely buys a 500-square-foot condo in San Francisco or Boston, in Georgia, you can get quite a bit of house, like this 2,244-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two baths in Marietta.
