Cities with the most expensive homes in the Altoona metro area

Purchasing a home is one of the most important investments there is. More than a place to live, homeownership is an asset with the potential to tremendously rise in value. But with home prices reaching record heights, affordability plays a huge role for buyers.

The typical home value in the United States was $359,402 in April, 4.4% higher than the year before.

High mortgage rates are also making monthly payments more expensive; as of May 23, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate sits at 6.94%.

Although home prices have inflated all across the U.S., there are some cities that command a higher price tag than others. Location, size, age, and condition are all contributing factors to home value.
