This map shows the percentage of owner-occupied homes valued between $150,000 and $199,999 in your neighborhood.
In October, there was an increase nationally in the number of homes sold within the $150,000 and $199,999 price range while those in the $300,000 to $399,000 range fell.
This helped home prices dip by 0.6 percent compared to last year on the same month. It also coincided with the 25 percent increase of home sales between September and October.
Data are from the United States Census Bureau and its 2011 American Community Survey. These values are an estimate for 2011 taking into account 60 months of collected data.
Using your cursor, you can hover over any census tract – the geographic region defined by U.S. Census – and see the percentage of owner-occupied homes valued between $150,000 and $199,999 in the box in the upper right hand corner of the map.
