I was watching House Hunters on HGTV and a young couple was looking for a house around the $700,000 mark! 4 bed 2 bath. Good grief! DH and I bought a house here in Ga. 1400 sq. 5 bedroom 2 bath for $170,000. Today we could sell it in the 250K range. In texas where I’m from, starter homes are in the $90-150 range...starters who buy at 150 are “rich” lol.
What about you and where do you live? It's pretty crazy how different it is everywhere!

We are house hunting. Around $350k in this area you get a house around 1200-1500sq feet that needs a ton of work on a standard lot, or cottage style new development with no outdoor space. There really is almost no inventory here though, everything sells super fast if it's decent, and under $700k

It's all about desirability. People don't want to live in shit-hole Texas, so it's cheap.

The average price of a home in Houston is now $230,000.  I suppose if you were living in a one horse town in Texas, you could still get a home for that $90-$150,000 price, but six years ago I bought a 1500 sq foot 3 bedroom house in Houston (outside The Loop) and it was $190,000.  Texas is not as cheap as people believe.
