* For St. Francis Woods, both 3 and 4 bedroom houses are included in the analysis to achieve a statistically meaningful number of sales.
** With so few sales in these areas during this period, the median price is not statistically meaningful.

The Median Sales Price is that price at which half the properties sold for more and half for less. It may be affected by “unusual” events in any particular period or by changes in buying trends, such as a market shift to lower-end home sales (such as is happening today — to a large degree due to the current difficulty in financing the purchase of more expensive homes, and for houses, due to the significant increase in foreclosure sales in some neighborhoods).

Changes in median price do not necessarily reflect changes in value for any particular property.
Different neighborhoods may feature larger or smaller 3-BR houses and 2-BR condos on a square footage basis, as well as radically different eras of construction. Some neighborhoods have a much greater quantity of sales or may be impacted by large new-development sales.
