Median Homeowner Costs Across The US

The costs associated with homeownership vary across the U.S., the US Census Bureau recently released statistics from the 2017 American Community Survey, an annual program that asks millions of Americans each year about several social, economic, and demographic attributes. The Bureau publishes figures for each of the 50 states and Washington DC. Using Census information, Insider, Inc has compiled how much the average homeowner pays each month in each state to own a home.

One of the measures on the survey is a set of selected monthly housing costs for homeowners with a mortgage. The costs include mortgage payments, real estate taxes, insurance, utilities and fuel, and, when applicable, condominium or mobile home fees.

Those median monthly costs vary widely across the states and DC. On the lower end are states in Appalachia like West Virginia, with a median homeowner cost of $984, and Arkansas, at $1,025. Coastal states like California, Hawaii, and New Jersey are on the higher end of the scale, and Washington, DC's median homeowner cost of $2,432 was the highest in the country. 

How does your state stack up?  Check out the map above to see the median costs for your state and then check out the surrounding states.  Its easy to see why states like Nevada and Arizona are experiencing a huge influx of people relocating from California with average monthly savings of close to $1,000.
