@bmo88:  our immediate area is 240k-ish average, but head out 5 miles and it drastically drops to under 200k. It goes from city to rural pretty quickly.

This is 4BR/3BA, 2900 sq ft, good school zone, decent area of town, formal dining room and rec room.

I live in an area where there is huge disparity of wealth. I did a quick calculation, and the average house price is $213K.

This one is $215K, 3BR/1.5 BA, 2100 sq ft. Crappy school zone, and bonus – near the airport! It’s not updated either. 

And this is why we rent, especially since we won’t be here long term. 

ETA: if you actually wanted to live in a decent area, you’d be spending $350K+ (and that would probably get you an apartment, not a single family home).

I live in Vancouver , BC -population is just over 603,000.

The sale price for a  home which includes  condos and townhouses in Greater Vancouver averaged $786,522 last month, that includes suburbs like Burnaby, Richmond, Coquitlam etc. Houses in Vancouver itself would be $1,000,00 to start

House on sale for that price in Vancouver-described as “old timer”- these  homes are bought for the lot, demolished and a new home built on site.

There’s a huge range, but it ranges from 300k – 2mil in my area, with the average probably around 5-600k.  300 gets you a 2or bed bed/1 bath about 700-1000 sf for the cheapest house on the market.  But avg is probably 3 or 4 bed/1.5-2.5 bath.

This one is 570k

Gosh! They’re all huge. I forget how much bigger US houses are!

I live in a commuter town, which has a long and proud history (stretching all the way to the USA) and a vast number of new builds.

The average house price is £151k (around $245k).

Other than a few rough spots, the town is safe, fairly middle-class and the schools are decent. Healthcare is good (local hospital has served me very well over the years, as have the wide selections of GPs). There’s a thriving high street and some lovely restaurants.

Here are two typical houses (from the old and new towns):

Three bed Victorian semi-detached house in the centre of the town, overlooking one of the parks and close to both primary and secondary schools.

Three bedroom new-build townhouse in the new part of town. Three storeys, close to schools, doctors, a huge supermarket and motorway access… but not so pretty!

I’m not sure what it is. Zillow said it was 88k, but Trulia said 150k. And theres tons of different styles of houses, depending on the area of the city. Where I live you’ll find more 88k houses than 150k, but you’ll probably get a better house than in some other areas for you money. I’ll keep it to my own zip code rather than the whole city.

88k house. 3 bedroom, 1 bath. Not much to look at on the outside, but the inside is nice. Hardwood floors, remodeled kitchen, painted, ect.


And this is a pretty average house for 150k. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bath.

@SpecialSundae:  I am in love with the old Victorian! It’s so charming. I cannot even imagine growing up around such neat properties.
