Janna Herron USA TODAY Published 6:00 AM EDT Apr 4, 2019 If you're selling a high-end home, you've got company. More pricey houses are up for sale this year, pushing listing prices to record highs. The median asking price for a U.S. home hit $300,000 for the first time ever in March, according to housing data from Realtor.com to be released later Thursday and provided early to USA TODAY.
