According to Zillow’s September index, the median price for a single-family home in the state — $549,000 — is high, but house prices are even higher in its four biggest cities: Los Angeles: $898,949 San Diego: $848,500 San Jose: $1,099,990 San Francisco: $1,400,000 In the majority of major American cities, you’d pay less for a house.
And in many, you could buy several houses for the cost of a single home in a California city.
According to Zillow, the median price for a single-family home in Texas is $277,062 — half of what the same home would cost in California.
But when compared to its California counterpart, San Francisco, the average price of a home in Dallas is a drop in the bucket.
For the price of a single-family home in San Francisco, you could buy three houses with money left over, perhaps for a detached apartment or garage.
When comparing San Francisco to, say, San Antonio, the difference in home prices is even more absurd.
Cost Of A Home In California vs. Florida Florida is ever popular.
Even Florida’s pricier major cities, like Miami, the median price is still only $499,000.
Compare that to San Diego — the cheapest of California’s three largest cities for homes — has an average price of $848,500, which is once again just shy of being double the cost.
