Median Prices for Existing Homes in 2005

Updated:
Median prices for existing homes rose 13.6 percent during 2005, according to the National Association of Realtors, but trends varied widely among metropolitan areas.

The real estate group said 72 areas had double-digit increases in their median price _ the price at which half the houses sold went for more, and half sold for less. The biggest run-ups, more than 40 percent, were in Phoenix; around Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Fla.; and in Orlando, Fla.

The highest median prices were in San Francisco-Oakland and nearby San Jose, Calif., at well over $700,000; and Anaheim-Santa Ana-Irvine, Calif., at $699,800. Honolulu and San Diego also topped $600,000.
