If there are a few sales of very expensive homes in the area this can dramatically increase the average sale price. This effect is amplified in a market with few monthly sales creating an average sale price not representative of market conditions.

Some of this can be caused by Short Sales & Foreclosures as well

The average price is determined by adding all of the prices together and dividing by the number of houses.
The median is determined by discarding the highest and lowest price and then finding the mid point.
