Older. Smaller. Not a great part of town. But, not terrible, either.

You could own 3 bed 2 bath average around 1500-1800 sq ft, on an acre of land. (Not brand new) Ga. It is a sub/rural area nice to live in. 

 Wow after reading some of these answers I’m even happier to live here…

No properties are under $100K here (Auckland, New Zealand). Even a tiny apartment would start at about 200K.

The average house price here is $1 million and you need a 20% cash deposit to get the loan. Home ownership is at an all-time low here because of this.

We live in a 3 bedroomed, 1 bathroomed cottage with a small garden and no garage and to buy it would set us back about 800K (USD$566,400). It’s BARELY big enough/warm enough/nice enough to have a baby in. It’s tiny too – under 300sqft).

We worked out that we’d need $160K for the deposit on a house like ours and since we could only comfortably afford to save about 1K a month it’d take us 13 years to save the DEPOSIT. 

Shit’s bleek here hahahahaha.

We plan on leaving Auckland in the next few years.

House?  We can’t even get 1/4 of an acre for that here (Australia).

Looking at around $400k minimum for a tiny unit in my area and no yard *cries*

Something old – 2 bedrooms, 1 bath that needs a ton of updating and is in a very scary part of town. City in NC.

Another Aussie bee here to say that would be a deposit where I am.

You can buy for $100,000 in some places but they would be in regional/remote places with little job options and little infrastructure/community facilaties.
