Two Decades of Housing Prices

The interactive visual below – created by Alison Young Global, using data from Zillow – is a comprehensive look at U.S. home price data over the past two decades.

At the turn of the century, the average U.S. home value was $126,000. Today, that figure is at a record high $259,000 – a 106% increase in just two decades.

Of course, the path from A to B was anything but linear with a financial crisis, housing bubbles in major cities, and now COVID-19, which is drastically altering market dynamics.

How has the housing market evolved, on a city-by-city basis?
