Philly ranks sixth in most-searched housing markets

The report also evaluated home prices: In Philadelphia, the median list price for homes in June was $239,000 (a 7.18 percent decrease from the same time in 2010) while the national median list price was $189,000 (down a more modest .05 percent from last June).
