In Houston you can get a nice 3 BR 2 BA even UNDER 100K!
This is what 350K will get you in Houston: http://search.har.com/engine/17302-Nevelson-Ci-Spring-TX-77379_HAR8547249.htm
My fiancé has a 3 bed 2 bath single family house that he bought for $150,000. It’s in the outer suburbs of Kansas City. Where I’m from we could get the same house for considerably cheaper than that.
But that’s the Midwest for you.
This thread makes me wish that I lived in a different state lol
650k to 1.5 million depending on how “sketchy” you want the neighborhood. I’m in Toronto.
My Fiance and I just bought a 3BR/2B house (1800 sq. foot) in the suburbs of Houston (oil & gas country) for 210k. It’s in a ridiculously good neighborhood. It’s one of the smaller houses in the neighborhood (most of the houses are 300k-800k) but the amenities are great so it was worth it.
You can go 5 minutes north or 15 minutes south, however, and get a new 2500-3000 sq. foot for the same price but the area is not so great. It depends what matters to you. Space or quality of living. That’s Houston.
I live in San Francisco and the majority of the Bay Area is over 1 Million right now.
I live in a 4 BR 1 1/2 bath house in a safe neighborhood outside Baltimore. We paid $155,000 a little over 2 years ago. Cosmetically it needs some work (our kitchen is FUGLY and all the walls were wood paneling) but structurally it’s sound, major appliances are good to go, new-ish roof, etc etc. On 0.12 acres, so decent backyard and space for dogs to bounce around and DH’s veggie garden. Nanny nanny boo boo. 🙂 We got very lucky.
Of course, the schools are mediocre at best, there’s minimal decent public transportation, and everyone thinks we live in the middle of The Wire. But we’re CBC, prefer to drive places, and we know we’re safe.
The topic ‘How much is a well kept, 3BR/2BA home where YOU live?’ is closed to new replies.
