If your American Dream includes owning a home, then STL is a good place to dream.

St. Louis came in at No. 10, out of the largest 100 U.S. cities, in a list from online real estate site RealtyHop that compares average home prices.

The cost in our fair burg averages out to $165,000.

Comparing it to our major-city neighbors, we are not as affordable as Memphis ($155,000) or Cincinnati ($161,000).

We are, however, slightly cheaper than Indianapolis ($165,700), Kansas City ($175,000) and Louisville ($189,000). Both Chicago and Nashville are far pricier, with homes averaging $310,000.

The most expensive houses are in San Francisco ($1.45 million) and the cheapest are in Detroit ($50,000).
