All across the U.S., the rise in home prices is far outpacing inflation. Home prices have increased by 1,608% since 1970, while inflation has increased by 644%, according to the online real estate calculator resource, Anytime Estimate. If home prices grew at the same rate as inflation since 1970, the median home price today would be just $177,788 -- in actuality, it's $408,100.
