Many markets are in the Midwest, where the combined median price is below the average nationally, according to realtor.com.

“With the median home list price hovering at a record level, affordable markets are very attractive for buyers, which is contributing to the popularity of many Midwestern markets,” says Danielle Hale, chief economist at realtor.com®. “Although construction is increasing in many regions, inventory remains scarce due to strong buyer demand and years of underbuilding. Even these affordable markets run the risk of what we’ve seen elsewhere if they aren’t able to keep pace with new construction.”
