  • It depends on so many things. There really is no way for us to guess. You could look online at houses for sale in your area to get a better idea.

  • Definitely depends on where you are. As the PP poster suggested - google some real estate sites and look up homes in the area you want. Generally they will (at least) tell you how many rooms, year built, square footage and asking price.

  • I would check out zillow.com for some recent analysis. Otherwise contact a realtor for a market analysis of the area you are interested in.
