Coldwell Banker Real Estate Releases Extensive Home Listing Report

Comparing Average Home Price in 2,000 Markets Across All 50 States

2014 Home Listing Report Finds Average Home in Los Altos, Calif., Costs the Same as 30 Similar Homes in Cleveland

November 12, 2014 // Franchising.com // Madison, N.J. - How many homes in the Midwest can you buy for one in Silicon Valley? About 30, according to Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. For the second time in three years, the Coldwell Banker® Home Listing Report ranked Los Altos, Calif. as the most expensive market in the United States. The average four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the Silicon Valley market costs $1,963,100. This is six times the national average in this report ($295,317) and 30 times the cost of a home in the country’s most affordable market, Cleveland.

"Both the most expensive and most affordable markets in this year’s Home Listing Report have become real estate hot spots," said Budge Huskey, president and chief executive officer of Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. "Los Altos is in the heart of Silicon Valley, where seven of the top most expensive markets are located. And Cleveland has been making headlines for its surge in home sales."

The annual report is the most extensive home price comparison tool currently available in the United States, ranking the average listing price of four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes in nearly 2,000 markets. While other affordability reports provide average or median prices for all homes in a given area, the Coldwell Banker Home Listing Report analyzes more than 51,000 similar listings to better address how much a home in one market would cost if the same home were located somewhere else in the country.

"The continued success of many tech companies throughout Silicon Valley has brought markets such as Los Altos into focus," said Joe Brown, managing broker of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Los Altos, Calif. "With Los Altos providing the utmost convenience and comfort as well as listing prices reflective of the ongoing demand of properties, it remains one of the most highly coveted places to live."

Topping the list of the country’s most affordable markets, the average four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Cleveland lists for $64,993.

"As a lifelong Clevelander, I’m excited about what’s been occurring here in recent months, and it goes far beyond LeBron James and Johnny Manziel calling Cleveland home," said Ed Dolinsky, president of Coldwell Banker Hunter Realty in Cleveland, Ohio. "The downtown area has been rejuvenated, jobs are increasing and our wonderful suburbs such as Avon Lake, North Ridgeville and Parma are some of the best neighborhoods in the nation."
