Information on your local housing markets is available through the USA TODAY Network, with more data from Realtor.com.

In October, four properties sold for $1 million or more: four single-family homes.

The median home sale price — the midway point of all the houses or units sold over a period of time — is used in this report instead of the average home sale price because experts say the median offers a more accurate view of what’s happening in a market. In finding the average price, all prices of homes sold are added and then divided by the number of homes sold. This measure can be skewed by one low or high price.
