Here's what an 'average' house looks like in Georgia According to a recent Trulia roundup, the average house in Georgia has a great deal of amenities. Trulia bases its "average" house in list off of the median list price in each state, which is $265,000 in Georgia. For that price point, you can buy a home like this 2,244-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two baths in Marietta. It features granite counters in its kitchen, a spacious living room and a charming sunroom.

Here's what an ‘average’ house looks like in Georgia 

Average can sometimes be kind of wonderful. Just consider the price of an "average" house in every state and be grateful you live in Georgia.

According to a recent Trulia blog, the “average” house in every state looks quite different. Trulia researchers based their list off of the median list prices in each state and gathered top homes on Trulia’s online listing. Nationwide, the median list price is $289,000.

Wondering how some other states compare to the national average? According to the Trulia coverage, this is what average looks like in other states:

  • In Florida, the median list price is $299,900 and the average looks like this refurbished, 2,000 square-foot split-level northwest of Tampa. It has three bedrooms and two baths.
  • In Maine, the median list price is $239,900 and the average looks like this two-bedroom, one-bath, 900-square-foot, white-painted brick vintage 1900 in Falmouth.
  • In Mississippi, the median list price is $188,900 (it's one of just a handful of states with average single-family home prices lower than Georgia). The average looks like this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath stone cottage on a wooded acre in Oxford.


In the Peach State, the average house has a list price of $265,000. And while that money barely buys a 500-square-foot condo in San Francisco or Boston, in Georgia, you can get quite a bit of house, like this 2,244-square-foot house with three bedrooms and two baths in Marietta.
