Hey bees, happy new year!
I was just wondering what around $100,000 (+/-) gets you for a house in your area?
Fi and I were recently discussing housing prices around the country and sparked an interest in knowing more. You don’t have to include your town or county if you don’t want to, just state is fine. (You can also include square footage,property size, taxes etc if you wish)
where we are in NY, it gets us a 7 month ‘rental’ cottage (we own the cottage but not the land and we can only use it 7 months and still have to pay a HOA fee and taxes) or a trailer home but no option to own the land.
Thanks bees! 🙂

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*

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.
