I’m in Northeast Texas and in my mid-twenties. Fiance and I bought our home in September when the market was hot – definitely a seller’s market – for $157K. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths with a 2 car garage in an up and coming area.

Outside of Tampa, FL. We just closed on our first home last month. We paid $186.5K. Houses are pretty cheap in our town and our house is 4 bed 2.5 bath, 2300 sqft with a 2 car garage and a huge screened porch on the back.

We live in rural Pennsylvania and we got our fixer upper for $110,000 🙂 It is probably worth somewhere around $160,000 now though after all the work we put into it. It is a 3 BR, 1 Bath craftsman style bungalow about 1,300 SF (now closer to 1,600 SF since we have a partially finished basement).

$331k in SF Bay area when the market was still down a few yrs ago… now appraises for ~ $550k. Townhouse, not SFR.

These posts always make me sad. We paid around 420k for a townhouse in the DC suburbs.

$800k for 1,700sq ft in SoCal. The bathrooms & kitchen all need to be remodeled, in addition to some other more minor cosmetic work throughout the house.

$340k was the purchase price 3 years ago but we’ve put many thousands into it (and many more thousands to come…). It’s our forever home and considering you can’t even find a single family home in our town for under $500k these days we got a great deal.

We will buy next year – late 30’s – $700k ish (US.) I feel behind because of my age but my student loans also cost more than most people’s homes.

$140K for a 3 bed, 1.5 bath townhouse in Northwest. About 1,250 square feet. We won’t upgrade until I get pregnant.

We paid $150k for ours. Midwest city so lower COL. It is smaller though, only 1400sq ft and I bought it with just my income. Not my forever home. You can get a brand new 2500sq ft house here for $400k so that might be my forever home lol. It’s even cheaper if you’re in a rural area.

Dang! Unless you are way out in Marysville or Federal Way and bought 20 years ago, you got a crazy good deal!
