How much is a middle class home in your area?

And what area (preferably county and state, if you don't mind) do you live in?

DH and i will have enough saved up and will probably be ready to put a down payment on a home within the year and i figured it would be a good time to start looking.

  • I live in Strongsville, Ohio Cuyahoga County
    I would say the average for a middle class home out here is about $185,000-$200,000.
    There are some that are higher than that though. Quite a few developements springing up. Couple Gated communities.

  • Wake County, NC. The median I would guess is around $220K, but there are many many communities that start at $500 and up too, especially right around where we live.

  • I live SW of Pittsburgh PA. You can purchase older 2 bedrm homes in this area for as little as 40,000. Taxes are low and schools are okay. I don't know where you live but try realtor.com when you are ready to start looking.
