With Sound Shore access, Rye is known for its coveted school systems and its dynamic downtown full of restaurants and shops, so it’s no surprise that the homes there regularly sell for prices in the multimillions. An affordable listing by most standards is a rarity, but anything under the median price counts as a good deal for Rye homebuyer wannabes.
Rye Median Home Price: $1,895,000
