  • I think you mean, 1,500 square feet of space. It depends where you live. What shape the house is in. That's a pretty broad area you posted.

  • My house sold for that and it was only 1,000 sq ft. It depends on so much like the market in your area. Call a realtor in your community

  • I'm hoping you mean 1500 sq feet? It depends on where you're at.Here in Ohio you could easily get that for $130,000.00

  • Don't call a realator. Do the research yourself. Go to google and type in the address of a house that's for sale in a neighborhood you want to live in. Different websites will come up and will tell you about that house. On some of the sites there will be maps and you can find out about other houses in that neighborhood.

  • Totally depends on where in the country you live. In CA you couldn't by a shack for that. But where I live you could even get a new home in a builders community (1800sq ft) for $130,000
