The median list price used in this report represents the midpoint of all homes or units listed for sale during the given time period. Experts say the median provides a more accurate picture of what is happening in a market than the average list price, which would be the sum of all list prices and then divide it by the number of homes sold. The average can be skewed by a particularly low or high price.
