Interactive: American Community Survey Home Values by County

Only three large counties in the nation saw significant growth in home values from 2007 to 2012, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report released this month, and two of those counties — Bexar and Travis — were in Texas.

Of the 50 most populous counties in the country, two of the five with the lowest median home values were in Texas: Bexar ($123,500) and Dallas ($128,000).
