$188,000 – Float home with moorage of $510 a month

$399,000 – price is basically for the land only

@MrsDD:  I’ve only been to NYC once but man do I want to go back! My SO & I are talking about a destination wedding in DC but our 2nd choice, if DC doesn’t work is NY. I live in Florida too =) We were SO lucky when we went to Ireland, it only rained one time half of the day…it was when we were supposed to go see the Cliffs of Moher which sucks because we didn’t get to see them but everyone was surprised it only rained once!

I’m in northern DE, we have pretty reasonable prices.

This one is 100k exactly. 3br 2ba townhome that needs new carpet on 2 floors. You can get ones in worse neighborhoods that are fairly move-in ready but maybe just need a little updating.


200K will get you a very nice townhome in the area, or a pretty nice detatched home (maybe older?) This one is in a nice area and is COMPLETELY re-done inside, absolutely gorgeous. 3br 3ba with finished basement and lots of nice features – new appliances, hardwood throughout, granite counters, beautifully painted walls with nice chair rails/molding, you get the idea.

  $400k gets a nice detached home (lots of new builds in this range) This one is a 5br 4 ba, 3800 sq ft with a finished basement, in-ground pool, beauuutiful inside, and as a bonus, check out the mrs’ shoe closet!

Interesting to see the styles of homes.  We are in Ann Arbor, MI

$100k neighborhood is okay, appears to need cosmetic work. There were 4 in this price range on zillow. 3B/1Bath 1100 sq ft

$200 4B/2Bath 1700 sq ft


$300K great area, 4B/2.5Bath 2100 sq feet, hardwood floor, updated, pool, big yard

400K Brand new, updated, granite, 4B/3Bath, 2,600 sq feet huge lot!

My parents live in NYC and the price of their home is a mansion in most other areas. My folks backyard is a slab of concrete smaller than my rental’s living room.

Houses in my area vary drastically between being in the city and being in the burbs:


City: 1bd/1ba 650sft apartment

Burbs: 3bd/1ba 1,300sq ft A real fixer upper


City: 2bd/1ba 1,200 sqft condo, updated on the inside.

Burbs: 4bd/2ba 1,650 sqft Really outdated on the inside, but a nice shell and lots of room!


City: Ok, in my neighborhood this was hard because there aren’t any houses available, the jump is huge from decent apartment to an OK house. Here is one I found in a neighborhood near mine but not as nice. Still a duplex, 2bd/1ba 1,100 sqft. Updated on the inside.

Suburbs: 4bd/3ba 2,900 sqft Newer home, updated, on a nice lot.

The farther out in the burbs you get the more house you can have. Personally, I like being in the city. So many more things to do, and I live right across the street from a Whole Foods, even though we are renting right now.

It’s crazy how much homes and their costs can vary around the US and around the world!

This is the area where Fiance currently lives, and where I will be moving after we get married…

…This is $132,000 and over 2,000 square feet



$219,000 and over 2,000 sq feet as well:

…lame picture but $419,000 and 4,500 square feet

Each of these homes are beautiful! Sorry if the pics are too large, I’ve never uploaded pictures on the boards before, lol.
