    @BurlapnLace:  There’s always someone who has it worse than you. You can’t buy ANY house in Vancouver for less than $1 Million.

    I’m in Central NJ and could get a single family home for the mid $350’s, and a townhouse with 3 br 2.5 ba for maybe $280k

    Probably right about 400k for a townhouse, a little less if you buy one that has decent bones but needs heavy cosmetic worse. To get a standalone house of that size, around 550k (according to realtor.com).

    Yikes! That’s crazy. It’s hard to say in my area because it varies so much. I’m in Detroit, and the suburbs can range from very cheap to crazy expensive. For example, a 3BR/2BA house in Birmingham would probably run similarly to that ($400K) if not more. In a ‘burb like Ferndale, Livonia, or Oak Park, it could be as low as $150K, depending on how new and updated it is. Then you have the actual city itself, where houses are notoriously cheap (but usually require several tens or hundreds of thousands in repairs).

    It’s been super cold here, too. I’m over it. 🙁

    @BurlapnLace:  I voted $100-$200 but of course if you drive ten minuets out of my neighborhood you can get up to 1 million. But I would do anything to get out of NY right now. Taxes and weather are horrendous. My sister lives in AZ and my FI and I may possibly move there next year!

    This is a really hard question because it depends if you are paying for a flat, a terrace, a semi-detached, a detached… garden/no garden… parking/no parking… you know?

    I will say, however, that you will be lucky to get a 3BR, 2BA house in the UK. If you’re lucky, you might get a bathroom and then an extra toilet, but you won’t usually get 2 full bathrooms unless the house is bigger.

    @BurlapnLace:  I just looked and it’s so sad. $997,000 is the average for a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house (with an average of 1650 sq ft) in our town and that isn’t taking into account how well-kept they are. We need to move. 🙁

    You could get a newer, updated 3bd/2bth 2,000sq ft house for around $150K in my area.

    @BurlapnLace:  old, and in need of renovations: ~$900,000

    Renovated (and by that, I mean some modern updates to a Victorian row house): $1.1mill+

    A 2bedroom, 2 bathroom townhouse down the street just sold for $1.3million, and it doesn’t even have a parking spot! You have to buy a permit from the city to park on the street. In Canada. In a city with ice and snow 6 months of the year. WTF.

    We got ours for $155,000 but it needed cosmetic updates to get it out of the 60’s aha. A more move-in ready house with 3br/2ba is about 180,000+ in my area.

    @BurlapnLace:  i live on the east coast – a nice 3 bed 2 bath house here is at least $700,000. my friend bought a house last year WAY outside town (like a half hour drive away, decent 3 bed 2 bath in need of cosmetic updates) and it was $525,000.
