American Dream homes: What you'll pay in 10 cities

How much does it cost to buy a four-bedroom, two-bath home in the U.S.? From $2 million-plus in Malibu to $64,000 in Cleveland, here are cities with the biggest extremes, according to Coldwell Banker's annual survey of 1,900 real estate markets.

Los Gatos, Calif.

  • Average listing price in area: $1.36 million
  • This home : $1.66 million
  • Description: 3 beds, 3 baths, 2,800 square feet

For many home buyers the main selling point of Los Gatos isn't the scenic vista of the Santa Cruz Mountains, but rather the easy commute to Silicon Valley's top employers.

That convenience costs a lot of cash, though. A typical four-bedroom in town costs close to $1.4 million, according to Coldwell Banker.

This California ranch house is on a two-acre hillside lot with plenty of windows. A recent renovation included hardwood floors and an updated kitchen. The finished basement could either be used as a home office or a fourth bedroom.
