JOPLIN, Mo. — Stacker compiled a list of the most expensive homes for sale in Joplin, Missouri from realtor.com.

Buying a home is an investment—and an increasingly expensive one. The median value of a home in the United States reached $363,300 in July 2021, according to the National Association of Realtors. The market grew competitive and the price of homeownership shot out of reach for many Americans—but not for those willing to shell out big money for the most expensive homes on the market.

The appetite for homes selling in the high six-figure range became voracious in 2020, and that trend continues into 2021, according to data from Redfin. Sales of such luxury homes increased41.6% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2021, growing significantly more than the smaller increase for more moderately priced homes.
