The Western states remained the most expensive part of the country to buy a home at the end of 2018.1 Hawaii (median price of $580,000), California ($477,000) and Colorado ($351,500) led the pack. This may indicate that inventory is not keeping up with demand. It remains uncertain if that will change as five-year projections show Nevada may become the seventh Western state with a median home price over $300,000 by 2023.

Homes in many states in the Midwest, Southeast and the Plains are below $200,000. The two most affordable states, possibly due to low demand, are West Virginia ($123,600) and Oklahoma ($125,000). Nationally, the median home price is $222,000.
