So crazy but where I live (Boston) home prices are very high. They are around $1500 to $2000 a foot I have seen a crappy parking space in an alley sell for more than that beautiful home ksn1219 posted. That’s right $300,000 for a parking space!!!

Atalanta: China’s economy is a mess. Square is ipo’ing at a down valuation. Box is struggling. Twitter is struggling.
Startups can’t raise as much at the valuations they want. Yahoo, Google and FB have slowed down on the acquiring / acquihiring front.
early hires at startups can’t take money off the table as easily as they used to.
We’re due for correction. Yes, the big players are still growing, but they are only a small part of the tech ecosystem.

ksn1219: Im from the portland area and I would NOT reccomend Beaverton. If you are looking for something close to portland/Nike I would highly recommend Sherwood or Wilsonville. If you are willing/want to spend more on housing Lake Oswego and West Linn are both great places to live.

I live in northeastern Maryland. Houses here can range from $250K townhouses to $500K+ single family homes in some parts of this county (Harford). Then you have places like Baltimore city, where a row house in Fells Point or the Inner Harbor area can run you $800K to $1M+. And their property taxes are extremely high. And you have Montgomery county, near DC, where the single family homes easily start at $600K+.

We live about an hour east of Melbourne…
Median house price (3bedroom) is $532k AUD
4 bedroom is $600k AUD
The next suburb away from us:
Median house price (3 bedroom) is $720k AUD
4 bedroom is $850k AUD
Oh and none of these houses are new, most of them need extensive renovations

According to our state’s statistics, 140k is the average. I would agree.

I live just outside of London so its pricey, we are having to move out of the area as we can’t afford to get a bigger house where we live, and we want to have a larger house for when we get married/start having babies. The average small 3 bed house price around here is about £600,000/£700,000 – $980,000-$1,200,000

I live in Southern Ontario, about an hour East of Toronto, we paid $294,000 for our home, detached 3 bedroom 2 bath in a good neighbourhood. I would say we got a pretty good deal, the average home price in our area for a detached home ranges from $300,000-$500,000 depending on what exactly you’re looking for so it certainly isn’t a terrible market to get into 🙂

skplue: yikes… we bought our house in rural MN for $58,000. It’s a 2,100 square foot ranch style home with 5 bedroom and 2 full baths with attached garage in a quiet neighborhood. Our house also had new siding, new roof, finished basement, and an updated kitchen.
To give you more of an idea, we had also looked at houses ranging from 25k to 89k.
Larger very nice homes on the lake are more of the 200k-300k range… I rarely see anything higher unless it’s a new build large home out in the country. Typically the really successful farmers with a lot of land own those homes.

According to Zillow, the median sale price in my city is $261K. I live in this odd area of the county that is part country and part insanely expensive developments. My neighborhood is pretty average (lower to mid $200’s) while my dad’s neighborhood 2 minutes down the road starts at $400K.

ksn1219: I think I live close to you! We found tons of great 4-5 bedroom houses around 250-300k. I think it would be interesting as well to do a thread on property taxes, my friends from other states pay around 10x what I do.
