Median Home Price Trends since 1996
This chart is an estimated calculation of median home price trends by an algorithm created for that purpose. Long-term St. Helena data is not available from this data source – though its median prices are typically the highest in Napa and Sonoma Counties. As always, these numbers should be considered very general approximations of prices in markets often containing homes of widely varying size and quality. Many Napa County markets are very small, which always makes these calculations more prone to anomalous fluctuations.
