Here an average house price is 40 or 50 K the big nice ones go for up to 80k but I know that's low nation wise... So what about where you are... I'm just nebby!

  • o.o 80k? Seriously? That's like completely unheard of here in my part of NC. I'm not a housing expert, but from the ads I hear and from the prices I see while driving, the lowest is probably 150k. There are lots of new developments popping up around that are 300k+, and in Charlotte the prices are probably in the millions.

    It's completely ridiculous :( My brother and his wife are buying a house that's not even new, and they're getting it for 180k or so. It probably cost a whole lot more when it was brand new.

  • Define "normal" please. Some homes here,(SC) semi custom built brand new, with 3 bedrooms 2 full baths 2 1/2 car attached garage on a 1/4 acre fenced back yard are going for 116K. On the other hand you can buy a 20 year old house on 2 or more acres of wooded lot with out bldgs for about 100K and you can get used homes for 30 to 300K It all depends on WHERE. As in inner city, pre fab, trailer homes, AND the neighborhood you wanna live in. You can get a McMansion here in the "hood" for next to nothing, but who wants to live in Ganland drivebyville? Not me.

  • Well, I'm about an hour south of Pittsburgh, PA. We just bought a 5 1/2 bed, 1 bath (with a basement bath), completely refinished inside with hardwoods and molding and the whole deal... 27K... It needs a roof but everything else is great... So even after we do the roof and whatnot... it's gonna cost us less than 40K...
