At the height of the Great Recession, home prices plunged. But that was then.

Today, median home prices by state range anywhere from $140,000 to $1.2 million. Median home prices in the northeast portion of the U.S. and the West Coast tend to be most expensive, while home buyers in the deep South and Midwest get the most square feet for their dollars.

In New York's Battery Park, Greenwich Village, and SoHo neighborhoods, owning a home costs somewhere around $975,000. Across the Hudson River, expect to pay up to $550,000 in Tenafly, Park Ridge, and Cresskill, New Jersey.

Go even farther north and you'll pay much less. In Burlington, Vermont: $240,000. In Biddeford and Saco, Maine? $250,000. But in the nation's heartland, homes are more affordable. In West Des Moines and Urbandale, Iowa, for example, you'll only pay around $185,000 for a house. In Southwest Omaha, Nebraska you'll pay about $10,000 more, on average.

This map shows where the most and least expensive homes are. Some of them might surprise you.
