U.S. Home Value Statistics
The American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimates about owner-occupied housing throughout the United States each year, including data about Home Value.
Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. (The data in this story only considers owner-occupied housing units.)

According to a rule of thumb, a household shouldn't spend more than 2.6 times their income on a home. This chart shows the number of owner-occupied homes in the United States broken down by this ratio, as well as their mortgage status.
