Here's what an 'average' house looks like in Georgia According to a recent Trulia roundup, the average house in Georgia has a great deal of amenities. Trulia bases its "average" house in list off of the median list price in each state, which is $265,000 in Georgia. For that price point, you can buy a home like this 2,244-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two baths in Marietta. It features granite counters in its kitchen, a spacious living room and a charming sunroom.

Home price averages never tell the whole story. According to Zillow data through September 30, 2019, the median home price in Georgia is $193,500, up 4.8% since the same time last year. But that figure incorporates everything from $1-million-dollar homes outside Atlanta to multi-million-dollar homes in Tybee Island to $50,000 dwellings in some small farm towns.
