    Ah house prices… how I HATE shopping for houses!

    In the city I live in… you cant find anything under 300k (that is including townhouses).

    An hour north west, you can find houses around 1200sq ft for 180k (which is where I am looking because I can’t afford 300k).

    Gosh Im so depressed Cry

     

    edit: the house i am living in (which i do not own) is  1600 sq ft townhouse and it is valued at about 420k

    You can get a nice starter home around here for 85,000 in a good neighborhood.

    It’s actually pretty inexpensive around here, about $90 a SF is average.

    We’re looking between 125,000 and 215,000 for good starter homes. Very affordable out here in the midwest I think. 🙂

    The median sale price for a 2 bedroom Condo in NYC is $1.6M. In my neighborhood (UWS) it’s less because the apartments are mostly coops which have lower sale prices since they are much more difficult to buy and less flexible when selling. I can’t find the report someone emailed to me recently, but I want to say the average sale price of a 2 bedroom in the UWS was around $1M.

    In our area a small fixer upper in an ok neighborhood is in the $350K range. It of course gets higher the closer to the city you get.

    You could say there are 2 areas to the small farm town in Ohio where we live. In the actual town, which is more of a village you can get a decent home for $115,000 and under. However out where we are, we all have acreage so the average home is $200,000+.

    In my city the median value is about 650k, but theres a huge range from 350k-6mil.  I dont know why city data always gives median instead of average.

    I’m with Moderndaisy. I live in Midtown West/cusp of UWS and one can’t find anything under $1 million for a 2+ bedroom. My Darling Husband and I have just started looking at condos (he is an attorney and refuses to buy a co-op because you only own shares of the building, not your actual unit and therefore need board approval for most things and can be evicted for stupid reasons by your board, yada yada). We currently have a 3 bedroom rental and are looking for a 3+ bedroom condo – we haven’t found anything under $1.8 million. And, this doesn’t include your monthly maintenance fees and taxes – that is just for your mortgage. And, every place wants at least 20% down. But, keep in mind that quite a few (not all, but a lot), make more here in NYC than they would for the same job in other parts of the county to offset the high cost of living.

    You can get a starter home here for 300k. It won’t be nice though. More like a 2br/1 bath, no garage or basement or upgraded kitchen. 1000 sq ft. The schools will probably be bad too (the cheaper homes are in bad areas).

    A nice home here (and by “home” I mean either townhouse or stand alone house) is like 750k. A girl can dream, right?

    i’ve recently been looking at homes in the area we want to settle down (right over the border in SC) but we are still about a year away from buying and we can get a nice 4 bedroom for around 180- 190k – i’ve seen some new homes being built in the 170-200 area (which is what we are looking at) but im a little nervous to buy in a neighborhood that isnt built yet considering the housing market – what if we are the only ones to move in? haha thats a legit fear right?

    In our older neighborhood the houses are in the $350-450k range. Our next door neighbor scooped theirs up for $335k because it needed to be totally renovated. We plan to move farther out into the western part of our county, and will need to spend about $500k to get what we are looking for (3-4 bedrooms, 3 baths, 1 acre of land, solid construction). With that amount, we’ll need to do updating to the house. If we wanted something updated already, we’d be looking at $600k or more. New construction in that area starts at about $675k and goes up to about $1.5 million. So yeah, we’ll be the poor kids on the block.

    The upside is that we’re 20 minutes from my office, have one of the best school systems in the nation, are close to 2 major cities, have very low crime rates, have an abundance of parks and walking paths, and have great food and shopping at our fingertips. It’s worth the money to live here, and the people are definitely more polite and well-mannered. We love it here.
