Most expensive housing markets
See how yours stacks up.

(CNN/Money) -- Most homeowners know that how much house you get for your money depends entirely on where you live.

But Coldwell Banker's annual Home Price Comparison Index (HPCI) shows just how huge this affordability gap can be, comparing selling prices of similar homes in similar neighborhoods in more than 300 markets.

Specifically, Coldwell Banker looked at a 2,200-square-foot house with 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, a family room and a two-car garage. The neighborhood - a more subjective measure - is one "typical for corporate middle-management transferees."

See how much that home would cost in your city - or in the city you dream of moving to.
