Counties with the most expensive homes in every state

Buying a home is an investment—and an increasingly expensive one. The median value of a home in the United States today is more than a quarter of a million dollars with a mortgage, and $167,000 without one. Meanwhile, the median monthly housing cost for a home with a mortgage is $1,558 and $490 without a mortgage.

Home buyers have a lot to consider when house-hunting or looking to invest in rental properties, from the state of the housing market itself to taxes and potential resell value. The housing market grew robust and pricey in the last decade following the 2008 recession, but the market could be slowed by rising interest rates. Such a downturn can be good news for potential home-buyers, as you're more likely to be able to wager a deal on an otherwise overpriced house. Then there is the house itself to consider, including what kind of upkeep it requires (and those associated costs). Depreciation affects all homes at an average rate of 3.636% each year, which can be a help come tax season if you use your home for business or rentals—but may cost you later in capital gains taxes when you when you sell. Meanwhile, land value tends to increase over time depending on several factors including where the house is located and what amenities and homes are nearby. More desirable neighborhoods allow sellers to charge more; the mantra “location, location, location” has never been more relevant.

Stacker used data from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2019 American Community Survey to find the counties with the most expensive homes in every state (or county equivalent for Alaska, Louisiana, and Virginia), and in areas where people will pay the most for a home. In 2020, there were more than 48 million owner-occupied housing units in the U.S. with a mortgage and 28 million without. The mortgage payments considered for each county's data points assume a 30-year fixed rate fully amortizing mortgage—meaning the mortgage is paid off on time—with payments only on the principal amount and interest. It is also likely that fees and taxes will lead to higher actual payments. We ranked each county by its median home value of owner-occupied housing units with a mortgage.
