La Jolla Named the Most Expensive Community in America

by

Coldwell Banker just released its 2008 Home Price Comparison Index.  The Index compares home prices between 315 communities in America using a standard 2,200 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath house as the point for comparison.

A home of this size in La Jolla sells for an average $1.8 million, more than any other community in the country.  This home price makes La Jolla more expensive than notable neighborhoods in Beverly Hills, Palo Alto, and Greenwich, CT. It is a whopping $1.7 million more than the cheapest home real estate market, which is Sioux City, Iowa. Watch the video above to see interviews with real estate experts in La Jolla and Sioux City.

You can view a list of the top 10 most expensive and least expensive real estate markets as well as see a list of the most affordable and least affordable markets within each state at the Coldwell Banker web site.

For fun, you can use the Coldwell Banker Home Price Comparison Index to see how much your home would be worth in another city.
