Towns with Super Bowl Teams Boast Higher Home Prices?

Football may have its place in real estate. Towns that produce Super Bowl teams tend to have home prices above the national median, finds RealEstate.com. 

The average median home price of the 10 NFL teams that have been to the Super Bowl the most number of times is $339,800—much higher than the national median average of $216,700.

Take, for example, these Super Bowl regulars: San Francisco boasts a median home price of $751,600; New York’s is $517,900; Oakland is $445,200; and Washington, D.C., is $443,700. 

Meanwhile, the 10 teams that have been to the Super Bowl the fewest number of times tend to be from cities with low median home prices, averaging $212,450.

Professional sports and entertainment in general are expensive activities routinely enjoyed by the wealthy, and rarely affordable to the masses. It makes sense that within the economic sphere of
influence of such high cost events/venues we would expect to find a higher concentration of people
who can afford them, and therefore people who can also afford more expensive housing.
