NFL teams that go to the Super Bowl often tend to come from cities with high real estate prices. Cities like San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C. are noted both for their highly successful football teams and their abnormally high home prices.
Before you discount the accuracy of this statement, consider the following facts:
- The 10 teams that have been to the Super Bowl the most come from cities with an average median home price of $339,800.
- On the other hand, the 10 teams that have been to the least Super Bowls (if they have even managed to go to one) come from cities with an average median home price of $212,450.
- The median home price in the U.S. is $216,700. This means that the most successful NFL teams, in terms of Super Bowl appearances, tend to come from cities with real estate prices more than 50 percent higher than those found in the rest of the country!
Do these facts suggest that there is a correlation between real estate prices and Super Bowl appearances? Do football fans need to pay high prices for their homes if they want their local NFL team to go to the Super Bowl?
