The above is the distribution of US median house price (courtesy of webfoot). The data is a little out of date - the 2000 census, so at the height of the dot com boom, and before both the mid 2000s housing bubble and subsequent crash. House prices are probably roughly back to where they were then, but some of the details will be wrong. The scale is 0-$500k (in 2000 $$).
My general feeling from staring at this is that we haven't gotten this Internet thing to work properly yet.
