Adjust housing prices for inflation

Start with the inflation rate formula:

CPI in 2022 / CPI in 1980 * 1980 USD value = 2022 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values from above. The CPI for Housing was 81.042 in the year 1980 and 298.894 in 2022:

298.894 / 81.042 * $100,000 = $368,815.10

Therefore, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, $100,000 in 1980 has the same "purchasing power" as $368,815.10 in 2022 (in the CPI category of Housing).
