But there are still bargains to be found out there.

Recently, 24/7 Wall St. set out to find the city in each state with the lowest median list price. To do that, they looked at Realtor.com data from 900 metro areas around the country on the median list price of homes on the market in April 2023.

The numbers show quite the range from Clarksdale, Mississippi ($55,000) to Hilo, Hawaii ($655,000) and everything in between. The national median list price is now $430,000.

In the Tri-State (South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota), you can find a place at well less than half of that amount.
