No, it's not marble countertops.

New York's most-desired house isn't located on Manhattan's tony Upper East Side or the Hamptons. It also doesn't come with doorman service, underground parking or access to a 24-hour gym. And with nearly identical neighbors on either side, it's not architecture that sets it apart. It's the price tag.

Curious to know what buyers really want in a home, MONEY asked real estate listings website Trulia to compile a list of the houses in each U.S. state that potential buyers most often bookmarked for future reference. Despite different locales, styles and amenities, the vast majority of the homes most desired by Trulia's millions of users have a single thing in common: affordability.

That is certainly the case for the two-story, turn-of-the-century house on a side street in Jamaica, Queens — the perennially overlooked New York City borough where President Donald Trump grew up — although not where he chose to live his life as a real estate tycoon and reality TV star.

Listed for just over $200,000, the house is a bargain in a competitive neighborhood where listing prices average $480,000. But it's not just a deal by New York City standards. The median U.S. home listing price is $261,500, according to Zillow.

And that's far from the only one. A pueblo-esque Santa Fe-style condo in New Mexico? Under $261,500. An A-Frame lake house in the woods of North Carolina? A whopping $161,600 below the median U.S. listing price. A combination estate/private nightclub perched above Los Angeles and designed by Lenny Kravitz? Well, okay, maybe not that one.

But, of the homes on Trulia's list, 44 of 50 are below the median U.S. listing price, while all but four fall below their respective state's median home listing.

At a time when quality starter homes are hard to find, it makes sense that buyers have their eyes peeled for deals. Excluding California's multimillion-dollar outlier, the average house on Trulia's list (compiled as of March 1) is a 1,670-square-foot three bedroom, two bathroom house listed for $169,713.
