Wondering how much real estate costs in each Long Island town? We pulled the real estate sales data for 2018 (actually, the data from March 2018 to February 2019) from the Long Island MLS MLSLI.com for all the single family home sales in each school district. But what fun is a bunch of tables? We decided to color code the maps, which you can see below.
Please note that the sales data is based on the sales of single family homes only - condos and coops are not included. And it includes completed sales for 12 months from March 2018 to February 2019. Also, if the sale was not recorded on the Long Island MLS, it would not be included.
The most expensive category of median sales price, where the most middle-of-the-road home sold for over a million dollars, is a dark maroon color. It gets lighter as the prices lower, until a median of $500,000-$600,000, when the color is a light yellow. For the next range, $400,000 - $500,000, the color is a light green. Then the green gets darker as the median sales price lowers. So areas with the darkest green shade have the lowest median sales price, at a range of under $300,000.
During the same time period, there were 10,798 single family homes sold on Nassau County, New York, and the median sales price was $540,751. Some of the school districts in Nassau County with similar median sales price include Massapequa, Franklin Square, and Lynbrook School Districts, generally located along the South Shore.
As for Suffolk County New York, there were 13,975 single family homes sold, with the median sales price at $392,282. Some of the school districts with similar median sales price include East Islip, West Babylon, and Connetquot. That is generally the area in the center of Suffolk County.
The most expensive areas are along the Hamptons in Suffolk County, and the North Shore of Nassau County.
