Map of median home listing prices

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

In their continued efforts to help potential home buyers find out all they can about the neighborhoods they want to live in, Trulia added median listing prices to their set of local maps. In the zoomed out view, you get prices per county, at medium zoom it’s per ZIP code, and zoomed in all the way it’s per block. You can also see sale price and sale price per square foot.

With this, supplemented by crime data, commute, schools, and natural hazards, Trulia’s maps are a required stop for home buyers.
