Thanks for the information. But Average Price does not mean too much. Can you give Median Price?

Thanks, Larry!
You surely will be my agent when I decide to buy, I mean if one day prices align with my income ($210 000 x 3 = $630 000 max price I can afford).

this historical graph tells me that today it appears to be down. I don’t have a crystal ball therefore to suggest to you what tomorrow may bring implies more than I can give.

there are homes you can afford but their location may not meet your expectations.

What is the “buzz” Larry? Still lots of buyers around? I see the affordable houses being turned over and higher end stuff seems to be sitting-could it be that volume of sales at lower prices pull the average lower? See lots of sold stickers out here in the burbs but at lower prices…..pricy stuff sits and sits

if word on the street has value then ‘summer siesta’ is something I’m hearing

Still too expensive for most working people. I want to buy a TH in Richmond. But my budget of $400,000 is only good for 30-40 years old TH. I have to raise my budget to $450,000~500,000 so that I can buy a 10 years or so TH.

Too expensive.

You are facing a dilemma that many encounter. It will come down to deciding on an alternate location that is farther afield. Make use of the property search feature on this blog. You may just find an acceptable alternative.
