A crappy one bedroom flat in a not so nice area. Le sigh.
auggiefrog: That house is stunning!

In Vancouver, BC, where I live $200,000 will get you nothing. It’ll get you the 20% down payment required to buy a condo or, if you are lucky, a townhouse.

Here, $200k would probably buy you a dumpster. As in, an actual 6×10′ metal-sided dumpster full of trash. But on the plus side, for an extra $50k, you could probably get a lovely water view!

This thread hurts my heart… because 200k would get you maybe an old beat up condo in a shady part of town. To be in the area I’d love to be in we’d need 450k+ to get into a townhouse….
Right now I’m looking at an area that I’d compromise on and we’d need minimum $380 for a semi….
I’ve often looked at US real estate and it’s astounding to me what 200k can get you in some states/areas!
