Are you a 'House Hunters' fanatic? Guess these home prices with our real estate quiz!

Home prices in the US are getting more and more expensive each year; they increased 1.7 percent in May, according to CoreLogic. But from state to state and neighborhood to neighborhood, real estate prices are as variable as the weather. Things like square footage and number of bedrooms and materials are obvious factors in determining the price of a home, but those beyond the home itself can matter just as much: crime rates, the public school system, and local amenities can significantly influence price.

Think you can use clues on location, construction, and more to  pin down the list prices of these houses? Test your real estate savvy with this 18-question quiz.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
