Baby delivery hospital bill from 1954…Inflation adjusted to 2016 $893.93

The U.S. Census Bureau figures for housing prices over the decades are difficult to wrap your mind around. In 1950, the median home price was just $7,354. Wow! Fast forward 50 years, and the median home price was $119,600, peaking at $227,100 in 2006.

Adjusting those numbers for inflation gives us some perspective. The median price for a home in 1950 in inflation-adjusted dollars was $44,600. Compared to the median price in 2006, that’s an increase of more than $182,000 in 56 years!
