    >600K for your avg 3 bdrm, Long Island NY, a little past the border with Queens. Ouch. Buying anything near NYC in a good area is painful

    gg620:  There are some very affordable houses in suburbs of philly in PA…In camden you can find something dirt cheap, could buy a few blocks of houses there for what it costs where I’m now, the Bay Area.  You’re not going to find a decent house for under a million here.

    i live in oregon. we got a steal on our 3 bedroom, 1 bath house on a nicer street. it is your basic home, single level, nothing fancy. we paid 68k i believe for it, it was in forclosure which is why we got such a good deal.  houses like ours on our street go for 100-130k. we pay a whopping 399 dollars a month in morgage and that includes insurance.

    Atalanta:  Camden is the most dangerous city in the US. I went to college and law school there and believe me, you don’t want a house there :/

    I live in the northeast, in a somewhat affordable area. We’re starting to look at houses with a $250k budget. We can get a 3 bed, 2 bath, approx 2000 sqft, mostly updated home for within our budget. I can’t imagine living in an area where half a million can get you a 1 bedroom condo. It’s insane.

    Another Texas bee here. My house is 3B2Ba 1600sq ft, and was about $127,500 when I bought it about 2 years ago. Now it would go for closer to $135,000. I live about 30 minutes from downtown Dallas. Texas is definitely one of the more affordable places to live, granted income is also less than many states.

    I live in a suburb of Portland and you can get a nice 3 bedroom for under 300,000. There are certainly cheaper options but I would consider those fixer uppers.
