Casey Dowd – I was 24 years old when I married my wife in 1974. The average price of a new home was $34,900 and the average median family income was $12,836, according to government data.

Fast forward 39 years and it’s incredible how much prices have risen and the economy has changed. The national median price for existing homes was $180,000 in December 2012, according to the National Association of Realtors and the average median household income was $50,054 in 2011, according to the Census Bureau.
