Why Median Values?

Average home values can be influenced by especially low or especially high priced sales. Medians represent a value such that half of observed prices are lower than or equal to the median, and the other half are greater than or equal to the median. By using medians instead of simple averages to represent typical home values, a more accurate and useful estimate of what a home buyer can expect is given.
