Real Estate: AI Creates a Typical Home in Every State; What’s D.C.’s Like?

All Star Home, a home repair and restoration services company, has created an interesting gallery. They took two buzzy topics, the housing market and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and created what a typical home would look like in all 50 states and the 30 biggest cities in the country. 

AI is releasing new tools daily, so the company chose to take advantage, also pulling the median home value in each state or city to give an idea as to what these AI-generated homes might look like if they were on sale in your neighborhood. 

Washington, D.C.’s home is three stories tall and as narrow as a typical Capitol Hill rowhouse. The company cited the latest census report and the fact that D.C. has over 11,000 people per square-mile, making it plausible for the neighboring home to be so close.

Maryland’s home is a large colonial style, with a winding walkway to the home and a lot of landscaping surrounding it. Virginia’s home looks quite similar. It’s also a colonial, but a bit narrower and includes a front porch perfect for sitting on quiet mornings or relaxing evenings.

For New York City, AI decided to design a home more commonly found in one of the five boroughs of the city. A townhome was created with a gated entry to the building’s front steps. 

According to All Star Home, images in the study were generated using Midjourney, a service that generates images from natural language descriptions. To create a typical home across the U.S., the company used a prompt like this: “a typical, beautiful house in Nevada in 2023. Photorealistic, very realistic, lifelike, sunny day, as if taken with a Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L lens at ¼ sec, f/7.1 and ISO400.” 

Midjourney produces four images per prompt. To choose the image they ultimately used, All Star Home mentioned that at least one of the results would have an odd glitch, like a bush on the roof or dimensions that didn’t match the front of the home. They chose the most realistic photo possible. They also saw lots of cars being added to the images, even ones that would be multiple decades old in 2023, so they went for photos with no automobiles.
