Hi All,

Here's another list of the counties in the United States with the highest median home values. Obviously, it is in the Maryland Section, because counties in this state are all over the list. I'll do the usual DC/Suburb break-down, and also the state of Maryland break-down. This will help a lot of individuals looking for homes in the DC/MD/VA area. Hopefully they're able to view the "facts" and make extremely well informed decisions.


For more perspective

Median Home Value in the United States is $185,400 (keep this in mind)

Here's the DC/Metro Break-down. As you can see the DC Metro is really an extremely expensive area to live.

There are more than 24 counties/cities in the DC/Metro that make the TOP 150 Most Expensive Counties based on Median Home Values. This means the DC/Metro area makes up at least 16% of the TOP 150 most expensive counties based on Median Home Values. The average home value for the DC/Metro is a little over 424,000 dollars.

The Median Home Value in the United States is $185,400

This means the DC/Metro on Average is at least 2x's more expensive than the rest of the country (in terms of home value)
