Ten Priciest States/Districts to Buy a House and Where Denver Finishes

Last year, Denver found itself on the list of the most expensive cities to buy a house.

But how about Colorado as a whole? How does it stack up, home-purchase expense-wise, to other states in the country?

Answer: According to data compiled by the folks at FindTheBest.com, it's in the top ten.

The site refers to its roster as the ten most expensive states in which to buy a house. But as you'll see, the top spot is actually held by a district. Bet you can guess which one.

Continue to count down the photo-illustrated list, featuring FindTheBest.com data. That's followed by a heat map that allows you to see the median home prices for every state, not just those listed here — and much more information about each state is just a click away.
