sscott06 :  I just did a Zillow search for 3600+ square feet in my town in southern New Hampshire and the cheapest was $672,900, and that is not updated. What’s crazy is I don’t live in a super HCOL area, and our house (4 bed, 2 bath, ~3,000 sq. ft., 3 acres) cost only $10,000 more than I sold my condo in a suburb of Boston for 6 months ago. We also bought an EXTREMELY old house that needed tons of work, so we got a great price (just about half of of what that Zillow house cost).

I don’t think I’ve seen a listing for a 3600 sq foot single family home here. Do they even exist in NYC? 😂 3,600k sq ft would get you an apartment complex or condo, I see some listed for at least $2 million, or $900k in the poorest areas of Brooklyn. It all ranges neighborhood to neighborhood.

P.S: I’m only mentioning Brooklyn and queens, Manhattan is many times more expensive

My dad’s house is almost 3800 sq ft and in 1992 he and my mom paid $379, 000 today it is well worth over 1.2 million.  Even my house which is almost 2800 sq ft is worth close to $800,000! We live in the suburbs just outside of Toronto.

For that size in southern California you are looking at 1-2 million. I believe the average cost per square foot is about $280, but depending on the neighborhood it can get a lot higher. In fact, a house that big near the beach or in upper Orange County would probably be 3-5 million. 

Good to know you got a house that size in Huston for that price, NASA is actually on my dream job list! If I ever got a job there, we could probably sell our CA home and buy something 5x the size in Texas! I have a love / hate relationship with California and its cost of living / traffic nightmare.

$537,000 where I currently live in Louisiana – much more if you want to live in a decent area with lower crime rates

$938,000 where I grew up in San Diego

mishybear :  my house is that big. Two stories. 4 bedrooms. 2.5 baths. Basement. We’ve got 3 kids living with us. (2 more in college). Why wouldn’t we want a house that size?

jannigirl :  Your post wasn;t to me but I thought I would chime in. We had a 1600 sq ft house in Louisiana. In the summer we kept our AC at 76 while we were home and 78-80 when we were out. Our electricity bill was easily $120 per month from April-October. Our house was 10 yrs old, double pane windows, and well insulated. I can’t imagine having to pay two to three times that amount. My husband and I prefer a smaller house, but we also intend to have a small family.

I live in Detroit, MI. I don’t live in the city but about 30 miles north west of. A lower end home not updated (3600 sq ft) is about $350-400k. A remodeled nicer home is about $650k+. That’s quite the large home. My Darling Husband and I just landed a completely remodeled 2000 sq ft home on .69 acres of land for $260k.

mrsB052315 :  we don’t pay 2-3x times that amount. Probably around $220/mo. We’ve got a separate central air unit for the upstairs, though. Very cost efficient. Total outgo for all housing related expenses is less than $2400/mo.  That’s not bad.
