What $350,000 Buys in Major Housing Markets Across America

By Sharona Ott

Among other factors, median home values can vary drastically depending on the state, city, and neighborhood. According to the Zillow Home Value Index, or ZHVI, the median home value in California, for example, is $430,700 -- the highest median home value out of all 50 states. If that sounds massive, try the median home value in San Francisco, which currently sits at an astronomical $993,100. Hop across the bay to neighboring Oakland, and that drops down to $493,400.

The median home value in the United States is currently $175,600. Have you ever wondered what you could get for twice that amount? We rounded up homes in well-known cities across the nation, all valued at roughly $350,000.
