By reviewing the price/sqft band data for a given town you can get an overview of the price characteristics within that town. The data is shown broken down by price bands and year built. For example, if you had 1 million dollars to spend, the price band data will show you the average price/sqft enabling you to get an understanding of how large a house you can expect to purchase. Average price/sqft can tell you a certain amount, but to see the spread of price/sqft within a given price band compared to other price bands within the town tells you a significant story.
