    Fiance and I just bought a home. The original owners walked away from it and so it’s bank owned. They were asking $88,000. We got it for $82,500.

    It’s about 1500 sq ft, two big bedrooms, one bathroom. Nice red-wood kitchen with a beautiful bar front, laminate everywhere, beautiful bathroom with a glass stall shower with jets etc.!

    The home he currently owns is worth about $145k. It’s 2,000 sq ft, three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, very beautiful.

    Our home is a 2,000 sq ft, 3 bed, 2.5 bath single-family home in downtown Houston, and Mr. W got it for $250k. That is very low for inner Houston, especially for a new home with all the works (granite, stainless appliances, hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown molding, etc.). I am getting antsy about moving to another neighborhood where most of our friends live, where there are more restaurants, neighborhood bars, and grocery stores within walking distance. So we are looking at selling soon, but we don’t want to buy any higher than $300k because we want to always be able to afford our mortgage on one of our incomes alone – that way if either of us were to be laid off, or just unhappy at work, or if I wanted to stay home with future kids, that gives us total flexibility.

    $110k for a 4-bed, 2-bath 2400 sq ft home with a 2-car garage. We did spend about $15k doing renovations (hardwood floors, new doors, new kitchen, etc)

    Bought an all brick 2000-square foot 4 bedroom/2 bath single family home with an inground pool on a nice sized lot in 2004 for about $150,000. Suburb of Dallas. The house was also custom-built by the original owners (as were all of the homes in my neighborhood), so no two houses are alike. I love that – no cookie cutter.

    Now, my home was priced well, but my property taxes are higher than some. But that’s ok, because I live in a great county. Also, my house was less expensive than some because our suburb is further out, so more driving.

    We bought a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom rambler build in 1977, but updated for 195,000 about a year ago.  But, it is a 2 acre lot on a river.  It also only has electric baseboard heat and no AC, we heat with wood.  It had been on the market for almost a year.  The start price was 250,000… we got a killer deal, because the appraisal came back quite a bit higher than we bought for.  WE LOVE IT! 🙂 Oh yeah, northern suburb of Minneapolis.

    We have a single family home and I believe when my husband bought it (about 8 years ago) it was valued at $150-160k, with some updating the house is now valued at $180k.  Though, looking at what is available in that range with a little effort on landscaping, I think we could actually get close to $200k for it if we sold.

    I should also say, we have a 3 bedroom, two full bath house, eat-in kitchen (no dining room), small living room with fireplace, separate large utility room and attached garage and a separate car port in the back, and an in-ground pool.

    $105K for a halfplex midcentury modern style home in Sacramento, CA. 2 bed, 2 bath, about 1200 sq ft. It was seriously beat up when he bought it! He bought at the bottom of the market – now they’re going for about $140K. We’ll be here a few years and hope to sell for $160K before we buy our next home.
