Where do you live and how much is your home worth?

If you also want to give a middle of the road price for houses in your area...that would be interesting too...

In our area...most people live in a home that is around 150,000...give or take....

We live in Alabama and our home is worth about 120,000. 3 Bedroom 2 Bath..older home..but good condition, hardwood floors and remodeling the second bath.

  • I live in Pennsylvania (Lehigh Valley Area). The market value on our home is currently $385,000 ( 8 years old, 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 2 acres). But there are homes in my neighborhood that are valued between $250,000 and $800,000--there's a very wide mix!

  • Central Michigan

    Built in 1900
    1300 sq. ft. home
    75x190 lot - .23 acre yard (I think)
    3.5 Bedroom - One Bath
    Enclosed front Porch/4 season room.

    Value is 71,000

    The average price of homes in this town is roughly 100-150,000.
    In the next town over it's 150-200,000.
    The next town over from that is 50-90,000

    So it depends on what town you're looking in.

  • I live in South Florida. 3 years ago we bought our house for $450K (2900 square feet). Today it's worth alot less....probably around $350K at this point. We're outgrowing our house now and will try to sell soon anyway....we figure that even if we take the $100K loss we can make it up with whatever we decide to buy.
