High-End Home Sales Push Up Median Price

By Dick Turpin
March 15, 1987

For the first time ever, the median price of the storied American home has topped the $100,000 mark.

Strong sales of high-end new homes during January, particularly in the Northeastern states, pushed the median to $100,700, passing the previous record of $94,600, set only last December. About 11,000 of the 53,000 new dwellings sold were in the Northeast, nudging aside the usual leader, California. The two areas currently represent the nation's hottest real estate markets.

The annualized rate of sales of existing single-family homes dropped 32.9% from the December totals, from 653,086 to 437,970. However, resales were still up 13.3% from January of 1986.

California's median resale price dropped 3.1% in January to $126,532, down from December's $130,565.

For the Los Angeles region, the median was $126,407; Orange County, $152,438; San Diego region, $119,603; Riverside and San Bernardino counties, $93,255.

A few blocks away at 1160 Beacon St., another luxury condo project under construction is two-thirds sold, developers say, despite prices starting at $600,000.
